Dreger: Red Wings 'in the mix' for Jarome Iginla

The Boston Bruins are hopeful they will retain free agent forward Jarome Iginla, but as TSN's Darren Dreger explained in an appearance on TSN 690 in Montreal, general manager Peter Chiarelli's staff might be losing momentum. 

Dreger suggested if the Bruins are unable to strike a deal with the former Flame, the Detroit Red Wings would be "in the mix" for his services. 

Iginla owns a diminishing skill set but proved that he can still produce offensively by posting his 12th 30-goal campaign last season.

However, the 36-year-old is made increasingly valuable by his shrinking window, and a serious contender may be able to convince Iginla to accept a reduced rate for a legitimate opportunity to win a Stanley Cup.
