Why the interest in Leighton?
Youve got Khudobin!

Khudobin was traded to Boston.

And I take this deal so many times over.

I'd take this trade and run.

Not that it would ever happen, but Burns would learn a great deal from Pronger and Timonen; Burns is very reckless now and those guys would teach him how to play proper defense.

I'd actually do these three players straight up for Burns. No questions asked.

Meh, unless this provides cap relief (not sure what the contracts are on both sides) I see it as a wash. Do it or don't, I don't think it makes the team any better off by doing. Lateral move.

I consider getting rid of Leighton and Versteeg to be a win in virtually any scenario.

I get the Leighton part, but Versteeg is a solid player. Certainly better than Nystrom. I'd take Burns over Carle, sure. I think we all would. But the way I see it, Versteeg and Carle (and Leighton) together are worth a lot more than Burns and Nystrom.

So I'm in front of Leighton's house and I'm honking the horn, but I don't see anyone coming out.

Drive through the front door, up the steps, and drag him out of his room into your front seat.. We must make this trade happen!

Luckily, the neighbor's shed was open, so I drenched the back door with gasoline and set the house on fire. It is a tragedy about Little Billy and Sparky the hamster, but I did wrestle Leighton away from the paramedics. He's in the trunk in a burlap sack, and I'm speeding away from the emergency vehicles. Minnesota is west from Pennsylvania, right?

Yeah, right. I tossed a couple underhand right at him, and they went in through the bay window. The porch light went on, too.

K. Be prepared for Boosh to move in at some point.

I'd take Versteeg over Nystrom personally.

Yeah, something like that. Just keep driving, you're bound to see it at some point.

edit: It'll be the place where people with green and purple jerseys are setting up roadblocks to prevent access. They may have firearms.

Yeah I don't get all the Versteeg hate. He didn't really live up to the expectations people had for him here (myself included) but he is leaps and bounds better than Nystrom. In his first full NHL season Versteeg had more points than Nystrom has in his first three and a half.

Did you go to the Philadelphia one? Try his Adirondack Apartment - that is where his mail is being redirected until 2012.
