TSN rarely messes up this badly. Kinda shocked. 'Tis a byproduct of the Twitter era.
It's probably because someone high up in Boston DID think the deal was done, so they told their media guy. I'm guessing Boston management is just as shocked as everyone else.
e: How can anyone think the Pens gave up more for Murray than for Iginla? Iggy cost them a guaranteed first + 2 prospects, while Morrow was a 2nd + a conditional 2nd. I'd say the 1st on its own is worth a 2nd and a 3rd. And if they do end up re-signing Murray (so the price is two 2nds), the two prospects they sent along are worth more than the difference between a second and a third.
Granted, it's not a huge difference in value, but you can't argue that they gave up LESS to get Murray.
did Claude costing us the game tonight playing pandawful cost us iginla?
I wonder if iginla watched the joke of a decision by Claude to play pandalfo and let montreal tie it up caused him to veto going to boston and end up switching to Pittsburgh at the last minute
I feel bad for Calgary fans this is absolutely brutal. That's a terrible return, you have to think that Iggy made a gentlemen's agreement he would re sign in the summer if he got to choose which team to go to. On another note I hate Pittsburgh even more, another gift of an asset. I will be cheering against them exclusively this playoffs.
