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.
Highway robbery is right. Basically just for a late first rounder- that's the only thing of value going to the Flames. One must assume that there is so little value because Iggy insisted on the Pens.

After all of these trades, the Pens didn't give up any of their top prospects. You're right, Joe Morrow is their version of David Savard (maybe Morrow has more upside), he looked like the least promising of their top-5 defencemen prospects.
