How many significant UFA's choose to sign with either team.

You would expect that with the Steelers storied History both recent and 40 years ago that they would be a desired destination yet they lose more UFA's every year then they lure.

Pirates? Need I say more?

Pens? Iginla chose Pitt in a trade, but he's marginally better in Pitt than he was in Calgary. Kunitz acquired in a trade, Neal acquired in a trade. The only guy that could be considered significant is Paul Martin and calling him significant is a stretch. In fact, he was a 30+ point guy in NJ, he's not touched 30 points in Pitt. On pace this year for 40 points, but shortened season and the injury will have prevented that.

Sorry to derail the thread.
