Report: Canucks to make ‘big push’ for Jarome Iginla

According to TSN’€™s Farhan Lalji, the Canucks will make a ‘€œbig push’€ for Jarome Iginla at the start of free of free agency.

The obvious connection between the two sides is Jim Benning, who was hired this offseason to be Vancouver’€™s general manager after years of being an assistant GM in Boston.

Despite the interest the Canucks may have, they don’€™t seem like a logical fit for Iginla. The 37-year-old wants to win the Stanley Cup, and going to a rebuilding team that recently traded Ryan Kesler wouldn’€™t make much sense. After all, the reason he left Calgary in the first place was because he wanted to play for a contender.

Other teams reportedly interested in the future Hall of Famer include Minnesota, Colorado and Detroit. Iginla’€™s preference is to return to Boston, but the Bruins will need to shed cap space in order to sign him.
