I do wonder, though, if and when the time comes, whether Buff will be ready to take on a true big boy during the playoffs.

Yea, I remember that. And that's kind of what I was alluding to at the end of my post. I think because he rarely gets the chance to fight that he doesn't know how to when the time comes.

EDIT: Meh, I mean NOTHING really happened at all in that fight. Thornton didn't throw any punches, either.

Versteeg and a 4th for Kariya and a 2nd?

I'd love to see it happen(even though I'm a big Versteeg fan).

He should be able to handle most of the light heavies and it'd be interesting to see him against a heavy. Byfuglien against Clowe would be an interesting tilt.

Definitely expect Chicago to acquire an enforcer, as Kane, Toews, and Hossa have all been dealt huge blows the last several games.

OMG ENOUGH. I hate the old school hockey fans. Enforcers are DEAD. Noone needs an enforcer. They just take up a roster spot.

Okay, I'll bite...you have a vet or two but you need Ray Whitney. Very slick playmaker, killer on the PP....So how about Whitney/Kostopoulos for Versteeg and a 2nd.

I would rather put Versteeg on waivers and let him go for free over that

Have you seen Kariya ,,,, Guy is a shell of his former self

If Versteeg is available, the Bruins BETTER be calling. They are desperate for scoring and to have the chance to acquire someone who brings that and is signed past this year has to be appealing.

We had him once, time to bring him back.

I dont see Hawks and B's as good trading partners though

I'd be thrilled if the Leafs could pick him up. Hopefully more ice-time could help his game.

At one time I wanted the Bruins to get him back but you know what. Kris doesn't hit, is behind in goal production to the 22 he scored in his one big year. I know that he is playing on average 1:12 minutes per game but, but...

What he seems to be able to do and be very good at it is defend.

At $3+ mil I am not sure, for sure I agree that if Lucic is getting $4 mil soon Versteeg is worth a lot more than $3 mil.
