Armstrong was part of the Hossa deal, before they went to the finals, but wasnt with them when they won. Malone was with Pitt when they lost in the cup finals to Detroit and left for Tampa in FA (tampa traded for his rights), I think. Whitney was also traded the year the Pens went to the cup finals in '09, Pitt got Kunitz for him.
