TSN’s Darren Dreger: Don’t Count Pens Out of Iginla Sweepstakes
PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – Pittsburgh Penguins General Manager Ray Shero has been wheeling and dealing, and TSN NHL Insider Darren Dreger doesn’t think Shero is done yet. Dreger joined Vinnie Richichi on 93.7 The Fan Tuesday afternoon.
“Don’t count Ray Shero and the Penguins out on [Calgary Flames captain] Jarome Iginla,” Dreger said. “I know that’s a bit of a show-stopper and it sounds absurd. I’m not quite sure I’d buy the fit in Pittsburgh. But, Ray Shero is a pretty crafty negotiator, and he’s gonna stay in the trade game until that door closes on April 3.”
Dreger details Calgary’s asking price for Iginla, and even though he’s not sure the Penguins will be willing to meet that price, he’s not ruling it out. Dreger is impressed with the trades Shero has completed so far.
He also explains why Brenden Morrow may be more than just a rental player for the Penguns, and what it may take for Morrow to sign in Pittsburgh long-term.
Above all, Dreger is impressed with the message Shero’s trades send to the hockey world.
“The ultimate goal for any Pens fan, player, and member of the organization is to win the Stanley Cup,” Dreger said. “Pittsburgh thinks they’re in it, and they should feel that way. They are absolutely going all-in.”
