I've seen some BAD Versteeg trades lately.
Everything from Versteeg for Booth, to this crap.
Maybe if Burke got down on his knee n literally took a shot in the mouth from Paul, he might get this trade. But only after Paul posted the video on youtube giving all leaf fans the thumbs up. No words would ever have to be said, because the picture that would burn into every leaf fans mind would be worth more than anything they could possibly imagine
I actually think that's fair to tell you the truth

I actually DID intend it to be decent value but the pointwas that we are CLEARLY trading you quantity for quality. We include 2 prospects who may or may not work out and a UFA that may or may not resign with you. Personally, I woudn't make the trade from Tor POV, there is just too much speculation involced to trade a blue chip player like Schenn. IF Eriksson turns into a true #1 goalie, and IF Bourdon turns into a solid 2nd pairing dman, and IF Zherdev resigns with the Leafs, THEN it would be pretty good return for the Leafs and really WOULD help them out for the future. However, if none of those things come to be (or if only say one of them comes true) then Carcillo + Carle for Schenn is just TERRIBLE return.
I certainly hope you're not a Flyers fan because they're getting bent over in this deal.
Are they? It's not like VanRiemsdyk is miles ahead of Versteeg. Face it, he won the cup ring, and that instantly gives value to players. If Phili wants to win against Vancouver, try having a player who did.
