PITTSBURGH (AP) - Jarome Iginla had his choice of destinations when the Calgary Flames star was given freedom to explore a trade.

Only one of those destinations allowed Iginla to play with Sidney Crosby on hockey's hottest team.

Iginla called the opportunity to chase a Stanley Cup with the player he called ``the best in the world'' as the biggest reason the six-time All-Star agreed to a trade to Pittsburgh Wednesday night.

The 35-year-old Iginla says he's looking forward to joining the Penguins, who have ripped off 13 straight games heading into Thursday night's matchup with Winnipeg.

The move makes the Penguins the prohibitive Cup favorite, and Crosby says he's not worried about the sky-high expectations. Crosby says he always feels pressure to win the Cup no matter who is on the roster.
