Versteeg was benched today b/c Quenville "didn't like his play." Versteeg totaled around 4:30 minutes of play. He's been struggling to score, having gone 15+ games w/out a goal. With his contract, he's been rumored to be the next out the door and if he isn't trusted 5-on-5 b/c of his penchant for wanting to deke in the neutral zone, look for him to be dealt for someone with more jam and drive to the net.
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.
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.
