besides, it's not like the Bruins' offer sucked in comparison. you know what the Bruins reportedly offered? Kokhlakhev (sp?) and a 2nd.
if Shero didn't know the Bruins were in on Morrow he wasn't paying attention, it was pretty common knowledge. It also sounds like Morrow didn't present a list to the Stars, so they gave him a choice of team A or team B and took the offer for the team he accepted the trade to since they had no other choice. With Iginla if reports are correct he has given a list, meaning the Flames can choose the best deal from the teams on his list.

Exactly! Either way its good for the Flames.
