Jarome Iginla has changed his tune. After spurring the Boston Bruins at the trade deadline for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Iginla now feels that the Bruinshave the better chance to win the Stanley Cup. And he wants to stay in Boston for more than just one year.

"I've heard great things about the city and hopefully things go really well and we have a great year as a team and I'd like to play there longer than one year," Iginla told the Boston Bruins website.

Iginla signed a one-year deal with the Bruins that can earn him up to $4.6 million.

This sounds a lot like Mark Recchi who re-signed one-year deals in the hopes of winning the Stanley Cup. Hopefully it can work out the same for Iginla, who turned 36 on July 1.

While he isn't the same player from past years, Iginla still feels that he and the Bruins are going to have a good season.

"I expect to play well," Iginla said. "I expect to produce and be good for the Bruins and help contribute to a great regular season be a contending team."
