Atlanta traded Hossa and Dupuis to the Pens for Armstrong, Christensen, Esposito and a 1st round pick. Hossa walked from the Pens and joined Detroit for a year.

In hindsight, it was a bad trade, but that's due in large part to Atlanta whiffing on a 1st rounder in a pretty solid 2008 draft. Esposito was considered one of the Pens stronger prospects and Armstrong was a good player for the Pens and played well for the Thrashers for a couple seasons.
