There is no arguing whether the return on the deal was fair. It wasnt.
But I dont think this is the GMs fault at all. Iginla had final say where he went. He chose Pittsburgh. End of story.

If you want to blame someone for the lackluster return, blame Iginla. Sorry to say that.

Or you could just be happy that your team got something for your soon-to-be UFA formerly elite winger.
