What do you think?
The biggest problem is that Florida has very poor offence. Versteeg is one of the guys that can score, and is still young enough to keep around for a long time. It's digging a deeper hole offensively to pile dirt on top of a talent-mound they have with their goaltending.

My other problem, although probably secondary, is the value for us. What kind of + are we talking about here? I have a poor opinion of Ellerby, and added players are likely cap dumps in the mold of Upshall or Kopecky, not much of value. If we could get Howden, Shore or Petrovic instead of Ellerby, and a cap dump, I'd be more then in, but alas, it takes two to tango, and I don't see the Panthers doing this.
