LW FA market is not that strong and Steeger is proven in Hawks system. We know what we will get from Versteeg. A sometimes streaky winger who can also be moved to our 3rd line with Bolland if Bickell continues to develop or if Frolik finds his offensive game next year

It gives us options
I'd take Versteeg back in a second. Plus he only has 1 more year on his deal, so if he performs well then fine, take him to arbitration and get another year out of him, if not just let him walk and $3 mil comes off the cap next year.

Maybe we trade him for a 2nd round pick?
