The IGINLA debacle is NOT PC's fault! Open yours eyes people, Jerome IGINLA listed four teams, Boston being one of them. His GM made a deal that he liked with our GM. SHERO swoops in and makes a low-ball offer knowing that IGINLA is being courted by some of his Pens and his owner to come to Pittsburgh. Feaster then informs IGINLA that the Bruins, the Pens and the another team have all made offers IAW IGINLA's NMC. IGINLA instructs, via his agent, FEASTER that he will accept the Pens deal only.
That said and if all true, which I truly believe it is, my frustration is with IGINLA. Why list four teams, giving your GM some flexibility to make a good deal, then re nag when your GM in principal makes a deal that he's happy with. Like PC, I have a feeling FEASTER thought the deal to Boston was 100% done until IGINLA basically informed him that his list of four is now one at the very last minute. FEASTER had no choice but to take the Pens trade or none at all.
