CALGARY - It's not just the Calgary Flames and their fans who have trouble picturing Jarome Iginla wearing a different sweater.

It's a feeling around the NHL.

"It would be weird to see him in another jersey," said Colorado Avalanche centre Matt Duchene after his team's morning skate in anticipation of Wednesday's clash with the Flames at the Saddledome.

"Growing up, he was a guy that as a young Canadian kid, you always watched and admired his goal-scoring and leadership and how he plays the game.

"When you think of the Calgary Flames, that's who you think of, so it'll be weird if he ends up going somewhere."

Get ready for that weird vision.
