Oh gosh, its funny how everyone one of us were probably googling those 2 players.

So this is how it ended up...

Calgary trades their heart and soul for a 1st round pick, a prospect draftd in the 5th round 3 years ago, and a prospect that was drafted in round 3 4 years ago?????

What's Vancouver equivalent....

Prospect drafted in the 3rd round in 2009.... Kevin Connauton, since he was drafted after him, Anton Rodin, so Anton Rodin

Prosptect drafted in 5th round in 2010. Adam Polasek

So in Vancouver's equivlanet is our 1st round pick, Plus Anton Rodin and Polasek for Jarome Iginla?

Lets put this way, Calgary got screwed in the Phaneuf trade, they got screwed big time in the Iginla trade.


Feaster thinks ROR is a #1 franchise center..

He probably believe Hanowski which sounds alot like Jankowski is going to be a #2 center in the future. lol

Basically the Penguins are trying to emulate the dynasty era Oilers and outscore all their problems.

I'm not confident in their defense or goaltending.

Any team that gets that lit up in a playoff series against a weaker opponent has some issues.

After Orpik and Letang it gets mighty thin.

Douglas Murray is a pylon.

I have unfollowed Aaron Ward. This has to be embarrassing for him. He was first to report Iginla to Boston 'done deal'. He has lost all credibility with that one.

no salary cap for the penguins? Afford both Morrow and Iginla? Jesus Christ, this is getting dramatic.

Iginla at the airport: Which flight should I take? Boston or Pittsburgh?

that fourth line is not great



They don't need a fourth line. Top two lines can do everything.

The only thing concerning about the Pens is that although their offense is as good as we'll ever see in the cap era, the same concerns remain, defense and goaltending. Letang has proven to be extremely fragile and if he can't stay healthy it could spell disaster. Fleury is Fleury, who the hell knows what'll happen there.

I think Iggy is a Jedi, and used a Jedi mind trick on Feaster.

Feaster: Iggy sorry bud, you're going to Boston.
Iggy: This is not the trade your looking for....

Feaster: This is not the trade I'm looking for...
Iggy: You're trading me to Pittsburgh for some no-name college kids, and a 1st rounder.

Feaster: Hello, Ray Shero, I'm trading you Iginla for some no-name college kids and 1st rounder.
Iggy: You can go ahead with the trade

Feaster: You'll do the deal...great.

Iggy: Have a cookie.

Feaster: Nom, nom, nom, nom....

It's not wards fault it's his sources that lost credibility


It doesn't matter. You can't call it absolute until the papers are signed. This era of instant information has made people careless when trying to be the first to report a story. When TSN's homepage has a story that Iginla's been dealt to Boston, I expect that to be the truth.

So TSN panel just said Pitts realizes they won't be able to re-sign Iggy this summer due to their cap. Crazy. So Iggy likely becomes a free agent this summer. Where does he go?


Anywhere he wants.

Good for him! :)

Still think Calgary got screwed, but at least it is better than that Boston trade, guaranteed first rounder.

Still hoping the Canucks can make a splash coming up soon and put some pieces together for the playoffs. We aren't even close, and looking at Pittsburgh.. well, we're not even close. :P

Letang is very good, but primarily an offensive guy. Niskanen is above average. Martin, Engelland and Orpik are mediocre. Murray is terrible. That equals a suspect defensive group.

The numbers bear this out. They're 12th in the league in shots allowed. That's not terrible, but not exactly stellar either. With the skill they have at forward, they should be better than that. Their defense lets them down.


Letang is their best. Orpik is a solid shut down d-man, was huge in their 09 cup run. Murray solid defensive d-man, was a top guy in SJ. They don't got the best d, but a very solid one, solid enough for a cup. And with that forward group, they will be just fine

Give Pitts the Cup already. Let's forget this season, and focus on the off-season. We're not going anywhere this year. LOL.

Looks like they swapped Button for Ward on the panel after the Pittsburgh news broke. Ward's probably in the TSN parking lot, smashing a golf club against a car. :)

I would've thought that Iginla would at least fetch a big name prospect. 99% of us never heard of those two prospects.
