    Default Top 10 Worst trades of the decade (we made the list...twice)

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/puc...urn=nhl,209570

    I will paraphrase...

    10) Hossa to Pens. Despite Hossa only playing here for 3 months, we actually won out on this trade.

    9) Atl trades Braydon Coburn to Flyers for Alexi Zhitnik (2007)

    8) Buf trades chris Gratton and 1st to Phoenix for Danny Briere (2003)

    7) Phi trades Patrick Sharp and Eric Meloche to Chicago for Matt Ellison and a 3rd (2006)

    6) NYI trades Luongo and Jokinen to Fla for Parrish and Kvasha (2000)

    5) Bruins trade Thornton to SJ for sturm, wayne primeau and Brad Stuart (2005)

    4) Jagr to Wash

    3) NYI trade Chara Muckalt and 1st (Spezza) to Ottawa for Yashin (2001) [btw, it says Yashin is STILL counting against NYI's cap]

    2) Calgary trades Marc Savard to ATL for Ruslan Zainullin (2002

    1) Fla trades Luongo Kajicek and 6th to Van for Auld, allen, and Bertuzzi (2006)

    Looking at that list there's a lesson to be learned... Don't trade Luongo. He was traded twice and whoever traded him got burnt badly both times

    I still remember the Jagr to Caps story quoting some idiot scout (ours or someone else's) saying, "I can't believe the Pens picked up those young players from Washington. Wow." (Or words to that effect!!)
