The value seems like it's there, although I wouldn't blame Pens fans for wanting more and I certainly don't blame my fellow Bruins fans who are with me in saying "thanks but no thanks."
Definitely understandable. It's also pretty crazy that the Bruins would shy away from trading three players who have never been a PPG for a player whose won almost every piece of hardware in his sport. However, I do like your reasoning. I think it comes down to Depth vs. Top end talent. I personally think it would make the bruins better assuming he stays healthy which is a big if. As for the Pens, In my mind it's a toss-up but I'll let other people chime in.
