He had a chance to stay in Pittsburg and have Crosby or Malkin as his center. My guess he would have bolted Montreal for Detroit as well. For the short time he was in Pittsburg I'm not sure how much more he contributed than Christianson or Armstrong would have brought to a playoff run. I'm not a fan of giving up a load of good assets for a rental unless you're really, really sure that player is the missing link. Cheap character guys like Recchi at the deadline seem just as effective.
