PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – Ray Shero and the Penguins pulled off the surprise move last night of trading for Flames’ captain Jarome Iginla, and a panel of experts ranging from local to national gave us their opinion on what Iginla will bring to the Pens.

First up was USA Today’s hockey writer Kevin Allen who joined Starkey, Miller and Mueller to tell us just what kind of player the Pens are getting and which line he’ll play on.

Next up, Calgary play-by-play man Rob Kerr talked with the guys about the impact of Iginla leaving Calgary where he has played his entire career.

NBC Sports Analyst and former Penguins head coach Eddie Olczyk spoke to the difference between the Penguins today and the team when he coached them.  We also talked with Olczyk about how the Penguins are becoming the Yankees of the NHL.

Former Penguin and current Edmonton Oilers Analyst Rob Brown talked about what Iginla has left in tank and how he would rearrange the lines once everyone is here and healthy.

Last but certainly not least, Trib Pens beat writer Josh Yohe joined the guys live on-set from the Cambria Suites to tell us how much of this trade came down to Jarome Iginla wanting to play for Penguins ownership and alongside Sidney Crosby.  Yohe also shares with us one Penguins scouts opinion on the prospects they traded to acquire Iginla.
