Jarome Iginla Trade Breakdown

I figured the Jarome Iginla trade was such a big deal, it deserved it's own post.

So the original deal with Boston would have been for forward Matt Bartkowski, Alexander Khokhlachev and a conditional 1st round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft (provided Iginla signs with the Bruins).

But the actual deal that Iginla chose was to the Pittsburgh Penguins for forwards Kenneth Agostino and Ben Hanowski and a 1st round pick in the 2013 Draft.

Brochu's take:  Value wise, the Flames should have got a lot more for Iginla.  The Boston deal is slightly better, but it's a moot point if Iggy chose the Penguins anyways.  There are rumors of a third deal on the plate, and it's believed it was from the Los Angeles Kings.
