I'm not opposed to trading him but I like the guy. He bring a lot of versatility, plays well defensively despite what the +/- stat tell you and he's on pace for a career year despite a horrible start.
I wonder if Burke can try to pry away J. Staal for Steeg +?
Um yea actually. You guys picked up Versteeg with what idea? For him to play on the top line. Because like many, you saw him as a top line player being played on the 2nd/3rd on the cup winning Blackhawks.
We can go back to the threads when he was picked up. Most Leaf fans sure as hell weren't hoping he'd be a 55 point player.
Hes 3rd line on one of the worst teams in the league. So no, his value has gone down. Not up.
