I'm pretty positive the next move is to flip a Carcillo, Z, or Nodl for draft picks and room for Leino.

It has to be.

Fair deal, IMO. Your top-9 is scary .

Honestly, I can see Versteeg on any one of your three lines and it looks like it'll work .

Good luck.

Versteeg will wear Cote's old number, 32, according to Saravelli. 3+2=Five. So many V's on valentines day

Fantastic, Homer. Just ****ing fantastic.


Yeah, who needs established players to try and win a Cup this season when we can always grow talent from draft picks and try in 4-5 years down the line....

Please don't trade Zherdev. I'm just thinking that come playoff time, tie game in the 3rd period of a game 7, I'd much rather have Z out there than Carcillo or Nodl.

For a 1st and 3rd we could've gotten someone better. I don't know who, but I am not sold on Versteeg.

I'll take a proven NHL'er over a late first round draft pick every day of the week. Good job on scooping a strong player.

That first is extremely overrated lol.

I don't think any of you understand that.

Just like leaf fans thought they would get JVR for Versteeg.

I am sure someone else needs to go. Surprised eh didnt get burke ot take zherdev. Do they have something else brewing?




It's ****ing ridiculous. I've been waiting 30 years for Stanley and that pick won't see the roster for at least 2 years. I'm sure the whine bags will all watch and cheer during the Stanley Cup finals though. This was a good move by Holmgren, Versteeg will fit this team like a glove. Draft day will suck much less if we're the Stanley Cup champs.

Well you go please figure that out. Because before this trade a first round pick gets you Mike Fisher. Is he worth a 1st? And remember, currently it is a sellers market and who knows if that changes by deadline day.

But please, give us your list, we are dying to know who you think is worth a 1st.

Laviolette's perplexing line alterations yesterday might have sent more than one message.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/news/story?id=6122493

Quote:
"Right away I was extremely excited to join this team," Versteeg said. "They've had a lot of success this season. They had a great playoff push last year and I'm excited to try and have a good one this year. I like to make plays and score goals at the same time, maybe go out there and be an agitator at times too. I'm going to try and do it all and have fun doing it."

Versteeg, who was acquired by Toronto from the Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks via trade this past offseason, had 14 goals and 21 assists in 53 games so far this season.

In 223 games over parts of four seasons, Versteeg has 58 goals and 78 assists.

"Kris is an exciting young forward," Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said. "He's 24 years old and he'll fit in with our group of players here. He's a quality forward that can play in a lot of different roles for our hockey team. He can move up and down our lineup. He can kill penalties. He can play on the power play. We think he's a guy that over the last few years, particularly in Chicago, has really blossomed into a good forward and we think he's going to be a really good addition to our team."

the guy has put up some decent numbers when he was a bottom 6 forward in Chicago, and a top 6 forward on Toronto

Alright, perfect. We're set, and that will give us options/players to relieve any possible future injuries.

Versteeg - Richie - Roo
JvR - Carter - Z
Harts - Brière - Leino
Powe - Betts - Nödl
Carcillo, Shelley

Pronger - Carle
Timonen - Coburn
Mez - OD
Bart

Bob
Booosh

I get 23, or does Lappy still count?

As a Leafs fan, I like your team, but I sincerely hope you lose every game from here on out so that the pick will actually mean something to us!

More or less, we got a 2nd and a 4th for Versteeg, as it stands right now...which looks good from your perspective. Versteeg is NOT a game changer, but will be valuable to you guys on your upcoming cup run. Good luck.

I honestly think we should trade Carle in the off season for someone's first and then bring up Gustafsson and then sign Leino.
