I literally laughed out loud when I saw this.  I thought it was a done deal to Boston, and had been joking about the Penguins pissing everyone off by grabbing Iginla too.  Didn't think it was possible.  Totally shocked.

 

But they really have to win it all this year.  They've pushed in all their chips for this year's run.  Suddenly the Thursday night game is must-see-TV for me; I'm really curious to see what Iginla looks like on a line with Crosby.

Didn't the Pens make several other moves the year they added Hossa? Or am I remembering that wrong?

The Hossa trade included Dupuis, and they also added Hal Gill.  That was all for that season.

 

If I'm remembering right, the Penguins have parted with their 2013 1st, 2nd, and 5th round draft picks, and their 2014 2nd round draft pick.  However, they did pick up Dallas' 2013 3rd round pick.  That honestly doesn't even look that bad to me.

And three strong prospects.

OK, let's say that the Wings had given up their 2013 1st, 2nd, and 5th, 2014th 2nd, and three of Jarnkrok, Pulkkinen, Sproul, Ouellet, Tatar, and Sheahan for three players whom we could not possibly re-sign---one of whom was a third-pairing defenseman, another who was a beat-up power forward, and a third who was almost certain to return to his hometown anyway.

 

No thanks. This is a team in the process of rebuilding on the fly.

Hell of a gamble by Shero.  Sometimes this kind of thing works out - I'm old enough to remember when the Rangers traded for a ton of players in '94.  Sometimes it doesn't - I remember teh interwebz going into meltdown when the Avs signed Kariya and Selanne "just hand them the cup now!"


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

So... Penguins pick up Morrow AND Iginla.  I suppose they're going to win the Dekeyser sweepstakes, too.  I quit.

Yeah, wait until somebody interviews Crosby to see what he has to say.  That'll be the 4th time.

Well, it looks like it's all or nothing for Pittsburgh. I believe I called this one.

 

Man, I hope the Wings get some name that no one thought was available, because I'm not all that interested with any of the known names available. I thought Iginla and Morrow might have been nice additions, but I'm not all that broken up by not getting them.

 

Pittsburgh is scary THIS year, but what of their future? Like I said, it's all or nothing, and you can't win big if you don't gamble...

Hoping this turns into the Pens version of the Wings 1999 deadline deals that brough Cheli, Ulf Samuelsson, Wendel Clark, & Bill Ranford to town.
