Apparently he wants out, what would you give up for him?
Toronto willing to add for 1st line talent.

That's not exactly what happened, Doug MacLean on hockeycentral said that he's hearing murmurs that Versteeg would welcome a trade to a contender, which means nothing, who wouldn't. He went on to mention the Hawks actually. I'd take this with a grain of salt though, him and Kypreos are the same guys who came up with the theory that their was a masterplan to make Kessel the last pick....
I really like him, would prefer he stayed with the team. If we have to trade him, I wish the Penguins had the cap room for him. Thought that would have been the best for him last off-season. Ray Shero needs to start signing players to 'salary-dump' type contracts.
hes not even a solid 2nd liner so why would anyone deal a 2nd liner+ for him?
His 3 mil + cap value kinda puts him in the place of a solid 2nd liner. He was great here in chicago, and not in toronto he just happens to be declining in skill? I think it's just toronto's coaching stuff.
Seems like most people don't have all the details on Kris...
He's 24 years old
Cap hit of ~$3M/per
Career high 22g/53 points
On pace for 22g/55 points
Pros: Good shot. Great stick handling and patience with the puck. Versatile player, who is solid on both the PK and PP
Cons: Sometimes tries to do too much. eg: Deke out the entire team.

Why do you keep saying that? He's pacing to do better than his last year in Chicago and hit a career high in points.
