I don't disagree with the premise, the returns for Iginla and J-Bo were bad (Giordano>Bouwmeester though). However the key piece was the first in both deals and dismissing Berra just because he has not played in NA to this point is shortsighted (STL tried to get Berra across several times, he was supposed to come across last year, didn't, will likely come across this year).
