Personal pride or an acknowledgement to the fans that spend their money to watch him play or respect for the sport of hockey... those kinds of things.

And when we politely state that Versteeg is not the guy we'd give up Schenn for; in otherwords, we'd rather package him for a true number 1 line winger......they say that we're overrating him.....

A 1st and 3rd. Talk about overpayment. And people really think the Kings are going to land a first line LW without giving up Schenn? The sooner most of you realize there is no deal to be made, the better we all are.

Of course for nothing close to Schenn's value... Crazy Toronto fans.

See what happens when you get shutout by the "lowly" LA Kings.

Philly's 1st is still gonna be late 20's unless they choke in the playoffs, surprised Tor didn't get a player in return.

okay, so who else are we looking at as potentials now?
penner, hemsky, and i know parise's name has been tossed around, but would that even happen before the deadline, or would it be in the offseason? others i'm forgetting?

It is a surprisingly clean trade. Pure picks and it reflects Versteeg's true actual value. Nice deal for Philly. I wish them the best, unless they play LA

Now they have more, and speed too.

And we have . . .

that same ole view from the outside looking in.

Not saying I wanted Versteeg, but I would like to see DL take some action to help improve the squad.

At least no one will ever confuse DL for a quick trigger man.

That's the going rate for Versteeg? No thanks.

I think Dean will make a move, but it's also pretty evident that the Kings scouting staff knows how to pick talent and that our development program is actually producing solid results. I think if Dean makes a "big" trade it's going to involve a roster player and lower round picks (not a 1st) going the other way. Not a top prospect.

We're just now getting to a point where kids like Loktionov and Martinez can come up through the system and be dropped in to the NHL and fill a significant hole. I can't see Dean dealing away a top prospect like Schenn anytime soon - particularly centers.

Its truly amazing what a good GM and his staff can do when they decide to try and win sooner rather than later.

The 3.1 mil in cap space should help them get somebody in the offseason. After a 50 some odd game test drive with Versteeg, they probably just determined that he wasn't worth the money to them any more, that or they didn't want to pay Versteeg and Lupul 7+ mil combined.

Ignoring a partial season of Versteeg, the Leafs turned Viktor Stalberg+Phillipe Paradis+Chris DiDomenico into a late first and third. Seems pretty lateral there.

People keep overrating picks, a low first doesn't mean much and certainly not to the Flyers.

Further indication that DL won't be adding a significant piece before the deadline. Prices are likely too high for him.

I wonder if Versteeg makes Van Riemsdyk expendable for the right price. He's struggled a bit in Philly this year, was even a healthy scratch I believe. Acquiring him would give us a legit LW in the system with 1st line upside.
