Sometimes waking up in the middle of the night is awesome.
EDIT: Okay, a real post now that we've woken up and checked that we're not dreaming.
Jarome Iginla has been traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins. That even feels surreal to type right now. The Penguins sent Kenneth Agostino, Ben Hanowski and a 2013 first-round draft pick to Calgary. Does this feel like robbery to anyone else?
Apparently the Boston Bruins lost out on on this one too. Multiple sources reported that Iginla had been sent to the Bruins:
Then Ray Shero swept in. It reminds us of the Hossa trade. [the Pensblog Blogspot]
It's 3am and this is crazy right now. IGGY!!!
Doesn't matter now, but CGY preferred deal was with BOS. The 2 teams agreed on components but w/o critical 3rd element – player approval.
