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.
The + varies on how much they feel they need to add to the deal to make it fair, Would dealing Kulikov instead of Versteeg be any better?
