In all honesty, it's a 1st-rounder and little more. The players are unsigned college guys who don't project as anything on the top two lines. Pittsburgh won't miss them at all, and Calgary had better hope that they turn into something spectacular.

Compared to the price they paid for Hossa, or that any of a number of teams have paid for pending UFAs at the deadline (like Tkachuk, or like Adam Oates back in the day), this is nothing. This is highway robbery here. They could theoretically turn right around and trade Iginla for double what they just paid to get him.
