Great value given some other deals this deadline. Pays to wait, I guess.

If RickRak doesn't re-sign in Pitt, this is an absolute steal.

Before the deadline, I had Rakell going to Nashville for a 2nd and a 3rd.

The 3rd would turn into another 2nd if the Preds reached the Cup final.

Burkie overpaid by a wee bit.

Ducks win.

VERY GOOD Trade by Pittsburgh and Ron Hextall. Penguins trade away a 750K league minimum guy (age 27) and a $1,725,000 Guy (age 27) who both shoot at the Goalies Chest since day one for a 28 year Old Guy who has scored 339 TOTAL NHL Points of which 154 are Goals of which we need more of. The Second Round pick is a guarantee for a guy like Rakell and Throwing in Goalie Prospect Clang when we don't need him is no big deal at all. THE BEST part is that 35% of RR's Salary is being retained by Anaheim. We NEEDED a TOP 6 Forward who can score and we got one. Some might comment that his points have gone down over the last two season but since he's been on such bad team that can be expected. WE (THE PENGUINS) have just added a player who can absolutely finish and put pucks in the goal and NOT the goalies chest. Sure ZAR is good on the defensive side of the puck but that's because he usually plays on the defensive side of the puck but with some NEW R&R we have finish and speed and legs to ADD to our lineup which is already super strong. Let's Go Pens!!! Nice work management and getting rid of the TWO players that my best friend and I have been begging you to get off our roster. AWESOME!

Right now this is an even exchange, but the upside is all Pittsburgh unless Calle Clang turns into the next Jonathan Quick (also drafted in the third round). Pens gave up a UFA defensive specialist and a minimum-contract fourth-liner who isn't going to get any better, at least on the Ducks. On the other hand, it's possible Rakell has a great final part of the season and does well in the playoffs.

I voted Pittsburgh.

Rackell at this point wasn't clearly worth much more than a second to me. A second plus a decent goalie prospect plus? Clear winner by ana

I don't think that you're factoring in his upside, which is more likely in my opinion to occur than that he simply maintains his current level of performance (which is on the upswing, by the way). Read @jasondomitrovic's comment again. I didn't bother repeating his points, which are the whole reason why Pittsburgh made the deal in the first place. He's also every bit as valuable on the defensive side as Aston-Reese, and he takes faceoffs, too.
