We already saw this happen with Morrow, the Pens overpaid because it both helped them and stopped the Bruins from getting Morrow. This is also the reason I do not believe the Pens are out of the Iginla sweepstakes just because they picked up Morrow.
This makes a lot of sense.
What PIT can do is even if they don't want to pay a lot to get Iginla, they can always create a bidding war and at least make BOS pay more or have them give up and let Western team get Iginla instead
