Kris Versteeg to Buffalo

Chicago just re-signed Cam Barker and they don't really have the cap room to re-sign Versteeg. He was a Calder Trophy Finalist, and put up 22 goals and 31 assists his rookie season(this past year) for Chicago. He plays LW, and Buffalo could use some depth on the left side. How much would Versteeg cost Buffalo? He's an RFA, but Chicago can't really take on more salary, so a trade between Buffalo and Chicago is probably unlikley. Would $1.8 million per for 3 years be enough?

At that salary Hawks would match and trade someone else. I don't think Versteeg would sign a contract that low though.

Though you never know, he doesn't have a LONG track record of success...

I'd give him $2.3 mil per, max.

3.5 million for 3 or 4 years, I don't think there's anyway the hawks could match that

You're probably looking at at least $4M if you want to take him away with an offersheet. Hawks would likely match anything less. In terms of a regular trade, the Hawks would probably have their eye on young talent that is about one year away from having an impact in the NHL (then again, who isn't).

If you're offering Versteeg 2.3 million and he takes, the Hawks match at all costs. You're going to have to pay way more.

If the Hawks match 3M$ + it would definitely open up some other interesting options from Chicago's roster though, for the team that made the offer, as well as the others.

(A.K.A. **** the Blackhawks over)

anything over 3 the hawks won't match and will take the compensation

but once the hawks let go of sopel, they will have enough cap space to sign versteeg

(to fit him in this year anyways)

.

saw all these matching comments and thought to myself they can't match a UFA offer...well they can, but there's no guarantee that Versteeg will remain.

If I were the Rangers I'd try to sign this kid fast.

Let Zherdev walk and bring this kid in.
