Well you might be right...I guess it depends on if the organization thinks Ashton is better than what they would get this year at 9-15.

Like I said earlier, the 1st for Versteeg straight up is too steap for Tampa, so I would guess that there would be a pick or prospect head back Tampa's way.

I guess it all depends on how bad they want the kid. My guess is that they really want a good player to play along side Vinny badly. What better option is there out there for the Lightning than a 23 yr old Versteeg? If they trade a 1st or a high prospect it might as well be for a young talented kid.
