08:18 AM ET 01.14 | One of the NHL's burning questions, let alone Calgary's, is now off limits. Media members were warned -- this is the final chance to bring up Jarome Iginla's contract status. After Sunday's gathering, all inquiries about the Calgary Flames captain's future with the club will be met with frowns and mutterings, rolled eyes and hot collars. Perhaps even a noogie or two. Scorn will be risked. So, according to general manager Jay Feaster and Iginla, this was it. ... But the fact of the matter is, Iginla, 35, is in the final months of his deal. Meaning, like it or not, it is an issue. And will be till he signs, or doesn't. But what the team and the player want to avoid is a headline-hogging sideshow.

Iginla finishes the season elsewhere I think, especially if Calgary isn't in the hunt (I know, real stretch there Spiny!)

Would love to see him in a Pens' uniform for a year, but that is just wishful thinking. ;)

If they would do this far more during a regular season ,we could avoid having to have our home air conditioning on when the Cup final is on.

Sounds like "His Roundness" Feaster would also like to wear the vacant "His Irkness" crown.

Jolly Jay is far to positive and cheerful Roamer. This decree was announced previously by King Kenny !

I'll take your word for it, HC. I just don't want to be anywhere near the bathroom when he's using the toilette.
