RT @FlaPanthers The #FlaPanthers have made another move, this time on the trade route acquiring forward Kris Versteeg from the Flyers for a 2012 or 2013 second round pick and San Jose's 2012 third round pick.

The Flyers’ flurry of moves continued on Friday when they sent winger Kris Versteeg to the Florida Panthers in exchange for a second-round pick in 2012 or 2013 and a third-rounder in 2012.

Versteeg spent 27 games with the Flyers last season after being acquired from the Toronto Maple Leafs in February. His cap hit was $3.083 million.

The 25-year-old had seven goals, four assists and was a plus-4 during the regular season and added a goal and five assists during the playoffs.

The cap space cleared by Versteeg’s trade will likely go toward efforts to sign Wayne Simmonds, the forward who came to Philadelphia as part of the deal that sent captain Mike Richards to the L.A. Kings.

And suddenly the team is not as deep.

JVR21 07-01-2011 03:00 PM

High 2nd rounder in a deep draft and a 3rd isn't bad.

Hollywood Couturier 07-01-2011 03:01 PM

Do Not Like.

Garbage Goal 07-01-2011 03:01 PM

Meh return. Do not like either.

RevUpThoseGolfCarts 07-01-2011 03:01 PM

Now we sign Simmonds?

46zone 07-01-2011 03:01 PM

Meh he was an RFA and might've been able to net us a 1st @ the deadline... don't understand this move right now.

ChiTown Flyer 07-01-2011 03:01 PM

We already had room for Simmonds... anyone who says differently clearly doesn't understand how to use capgeek...

I feel indifferent about this. I would have liked to see him given another opportunity to prove himself here, but given how bad he was he really didn't give us much of a reason to keep him around. GL in Florida Kris.

Now we can sign Simmonds. I would have rather hung onto Steeg and not signed Talbot, though.

We need the cap space..and I doubt we were going to get a 1st for him.

I think we'll use it to sign Gagne

JojoTheWhale 07-01-2011 03:03 PM

It's not like the value was impossible to turn down, so this is weird timing unless there's a winger coming.

Bryz4shiz 07-01-2011 03:03 PM

I hope we use that money to get Gagne back

Hollywood Couturier 07-01-2011 03:03 PM

Only way I like this if they sign Gagne.

decadentia 07-01-2011 03:04 PM

Holmgren's process for the offseason

1. Sign yourself too close to the cap
2. Trade players for ****** value
3. ???
4. Success

We still need to sign Simmonds, I doubt this nets us Gagne.

sa cyred 07-01-2011 03:05 PM

Who was it in the other thread saying Versteeg is 100% not getting traded?


Ya...FU

I think it goes back to something I felt before and said here, but he was here to help Mike Richards on the 3rd line. Richards is gone, and now Versteeg, too.

And it's a decent deal. Basically rented for the playoffs, and went from a 1st to a high 2nd.

philly_28 07-01-2011 03:07 PM

So we trade away a winger because we need cap space to sign a winger to replace the winger we just traded?

Hope it's Gagne, otherwise I don't see the sense in this, 'cause Leino won't sign for 3 mio.

Hooray!
