Boston may as well have thrown unicorns and moonbeams into their trade offer for all the relevance it has to the actual trades that happened at the deadline. Trades that did not happen have no relevance.

But go on, I am all ears. Tell me how this hypothetical trade makes a difference in evaluating what was actually given up for each player and what they have brought their teams since.
Simple.

Boston would have had to pay much more to get Iginla than Pittsburgh did.

Iginla has been the better player. But Bartkowski + Jagr (+ Khokhlachev in the future) has added more value for the Bruins.

I'm not sure why Pens fans are getting their panties in a bunch. They got a sick deal. Got the better player. Why does it matter if we are happy with what ended up happening? It worked out for both sides.
