Iggy says rumours just rumours
Jarome Iginla has heard all the rumours surrounding the team’s mid-season collapse and insists there’s no truth to any of them, especially the ones involving Dion Phaneuf.
“I never ever fought with Dion,” said Iginla, candidly addressing a popular rumour suggesting the two squared off in the middle of the dressing room.
“We might have had the smallest of arguments over the years, but I get along and got along with him well.”
And then there’s the age-old talk of infidelity linking a player with a teammate’s wife or two.
“You hear about people’s wives … to the best of my knowledge, it’s not true,” said Iginla, with a laugh.
“Hope it’s not mine.
“It’s funny with the Internet. You hear all those same things about other teams when they start to struggle. Guys on other teams were asking, ‘Hey, are you and Kara alright? I heard you’re going through a messy divorce.’ Another guy was saying he heard Kara was in Phoenix buying property because she was moving out. Turns out we were going on vacation to Phoenix and didn’t buy anything there.”
