Jordan left Pittsburgh mostly because he wanted a bigger role on the team. Which he couldn't get obviously with Sid and Malkin on the team.


Marc is getting big minutes and is considered integral to our team. Jordan wanted a bigger role and when Carolina popped up he was given a spot in their top 6 and a bigger role overall. The fact that Eric was already there was mostly a bonus. It might have played a part of his decision but it wasn't his biggest concern. Playing time was, and Carolina offered him just that.
Jordan flat out said that he rejected the offer from Pittsburgh because it would mean that he would never get to play with Eric.

Playing with Eric was more than a bonus to Jordan. It is a part of what drove him to be traded in the first place.
