Gee, I wonder if we could throw this into one of the other 4 threads currently involving Versteeg and JVR.

nah, lets make a new pointless thread and talk about the same pointless topic.

/thread.

Big guys usually take longer to develop and JVR is still very young and has top line potential.

Obviously I would do it from Leafs perspective... heck I would throw in a pick + prospect. Makes no sense from Philly perspective though.

My thoughts exactly. JVR could flourish after a freah start though. Maybe too stacked team (Flyers) and too hot in the playoff race to give the younger a chance to develop those tools. I don't know.

Definitely won't happen but it would take a lot more from the Leafs to get it done. Think Versteeg++. JVR is on ELC and highly touted, the Flyers won't just give him away.

What a stupid trade if it were to go through. Flyers need more cheap talent considering they have a lot of well paid players(not overpaid, just well-paid) and are close to the cap. They need more young cheap talent and not more expensive players.

That and acquiring someone who's already won a cup, is still young, and has played well in the playoffs, can't hurt. Though I still think it won't happen, it's not as farfetch'd as some may think. (the value going either way in a 1v1 trade, obviously not, but as a beginning to a trade, yes)

Leafs fans, you are not getting Van Riemsdyk.

6 years of no playoffs = Thinking every player wants to join the team with the most hated coach in the NHL

?????

Fresh start??? Are you serious??? He's just getting started. It's only his 2nd freaking year. It's not like he's stumbled at all. He's progressed quite nicely. Simply because we are deep enough that we CAN shelter him on the 3rd line doesn't mean that this is all he is to us. in another year or 2 JVR will be our #1 LW and probably our best offensive player on the team. He's already further ahead of where Carter was in ALL aspects of the game compared to Carters 2nd season and look at Carter now.

Flyers have no reason to deal JVR for anything less than vast overpayment. It's not his value, but why would they deal him for less?

The reporter is speculating. He said the Flyers are interested in Versteeg, not that they would actually deal JVR. He's just pointing out the obvious that Burke would like him.

Don't we have enough Americans? 2/3rds of our #1 or #2 line being American if this deal went through. Pass. Can we get some damn Canadian talent on this team for **** sakes. We have MacArthur as our only Canadian leading this team on offense in the top 6.

nothing but the core of the team should be CANADIAN seeing as it's a CANADIAN team with CANADIAN fans for the most part

Have you ever thought that maybe it's because they're useless as individuals, and not because it's some inherent trait among Americans?

Did the Philly guy say straight up, Versteeg for JVR? He said Philly is interested in Versteeg, but Burke (like ****in common sense would tell you) is interested in JVR.

It's like Pittsburgh being interested in Versteeg, and Burke being interested in Crosby, will that happen now? Oh hey, let's start another stupid Leafs trade thread about it.
