The deal is fine if the 1st was guaranteed. A late first, a guy that will probably be a good 2nd line center, and a depth defenseman is an okay return for an aging power-forward that was only going to waive his NTC to 4 teams.

It's not great, but it's fine. A conditional first though? It's worse than what the Pens gave up for Morrow (and to some points of view worse than what they gave up for Douglas ****'ing Murray).

No, I'm not a girl. Stop asking!
