SUNRISE, Fla. -- Went to bed and Jarome Iginla was headed to the Bruins. Got up and he's a member of the Penguins, likely reuniting his Olympic line with Sidney Crosby
It all went down about 1:30 a.m. ET when the rumored deal to Boston was trumped by Calgary's announcement that their franchise player was going to Pittsburgh for the Pens' first-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft and the rights to unsigned draft choices Kenneth Agostino and Ben Hanowski. Doesn't seem like much of a haul for the franchise player, does it?
So now the Penguins have added Douglas Murray, Brendan Morrow and Iginla to a team that's on a 13-game winning streak. Amazing.
1. With the Penguins going crazy, won't other teams want to look at big names like ..... Thomas Vanek or Jason Pominville?
2. Still want the Sabres to finish eighth and sneak into the playoffs? How long will that first-rounder with Pittsburgh last? Yikes.
