As clubs jockey for position in the Jarome Iginla sweepstakes, speculation among NHL insiders is the Boston Bruins have the best odds of landing the Calgary Flames captain in the story that will drive the final week leading up to the trade deadline.

“I think the Bruins are the front runners right now,” said a source from another club that has been monitoring the situation. “With what the (Pittsburgh) Penguins did the last couple of days, they’re motivated.”

The Penguins picked up Dallas Stars captain Brenden Morrow on Sunday and then dealt for stay-at-home defenceman Douglas Murray from the San Jose Sharks a day later for a pair of second-round draft picks.
