The actual deal breaks down like this...

The Flames received college forwards Kenneth Agostino and Ben Hanowski and the Penguins' 2013 first-round draft pick.
The 35-year-old [Iginla] was a notable healthy scratch for Calgary's 4-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche at the Saddledome. He's in the final year of his current deal, which will pay him $7 million, and will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
A native of Edmonton, Iginla leaves the Flames as their all-time leader in goals (525), points (1,095) and total games (1,219), while placing second in assists (570) after spending all of his 16-plus NHL seasons in southern Alberta.
Agostino, 20, led Yale in scoring with 15 goals and 22 assists in 33 games this season.
The 22-year-old Hanowski just completed his senior season at St. Cloud State. He registered 16 goals and 13 assists in 34 games while serving as the team's captain.
