Jarome Iginla RW COL Jul 06 '78
Jarome Iginla did not like being compared to cattle by Detroit Red Wings VP Jimmy Devellano.
"It's not very flattering, but it is what it is," Iginla said on Monday. "I didn't necessarily appreciate it as a player, but at the same time I don't think about it too much, to be honest." The Red Wings were fined $250,000 by the NHL after Devellano said last week: "The owners can basically be viewed as the ranch, and the players, and me included, are the cattle. The owners own the ranch and allow the players to eat there."
