So the Penguins made a similar trade for Marian Hossa in 2008. Hossa was more in his prime but lacked the playoff pedigree that Iginla has.
In 2008, the Pens gave up Colby Armstrong (former 1st round pick), Erik Christensen (solid young player with upside), Angelo Esposito (1st round pick who had not played in the NHL yet), and a future 1st round pick.
Tonight, the Pens gave up Ben Hanowski (3rd round pick), Kenny Agostino (5th round pick), and a future 1st Round Pick.
That seems like a lot less return. I think Feaster could have waited a little longer and gotten more back for Iginla. Hindsight will be 20/20 in like 10 years but that's my snap judgment.
Is it bright where you are? Have the people changed?
