How is Versteeg different? Because they botched the paperwork? He was still looking at potential $2.5 million offer sheets before that. Besides all of Chicago's RFA's were honorable and didn't negotiate with other franchises. Any GM in this league would have gladly offered him that.
If Anisimov drops 50 next season you can bet the farm on GM's around the league willing to part with a 2nd rounder for him.
