Ottawa-Philadelphia

I was wondering what you guys thought of this trade, I saw it on the Ottawa board:

To
Kris Versteeg

To
2011 OTT 2nd Round Pick (35th Overall)

Eh. I'd rather keep Versteeg...isn't this a crappy draft year?

Tempting, though.

Thanks for the feelings.

My theory is, it will just make a championship (if it ever comes) even better if it rarely happens.

In my lifetime, none of my 4 professional teams (add Raptors, but I'm not a huge basketball fan) have ever won anything. I was born right after the Jays '91 and '92 wins.

I'd take it but only because I really don't like Versteeg. It is tempting though like Beef said.

We just gave up a 1st and a 3rd for him. Now just because we overpayed out the butt hole for him doesn't mean it's reasonable to ask you to, but I can't see Holmgren trading him for that. I think he would rather give him a real shot on Richards wing when he's healthy and see how he goes. I would agree with that idea.

Wouldn't do that one from a Sens fan perspective. Versteeg was downright awful in the playoffs. Way too much perimeter play....

I'm just so pleased that this wasn't a "Carter for whatever weird-smelling thing I've been idly chewing on all afternoon" proposal. It's refreshing.

Sports Hernia. We'll see if can get back into form. We'll see how he recovers I guess.

Let me help you. The other one is an Ottawa 67's logo (one of the all-time great teams in the OHL)!

I would like to see what Versteeg could do for a whole season in Philly before giving him up for a second rounder.

Honestly, I'm big on Foligno, so I would have to say no.

To the person who said you paid a 1st and 3rd for him, I didn't take that into consideration when making my proposal. I can't see the Sens giving up more than one draft pick for him, to be honest. Yes, Versteeg is good, but the Sens aren't specifically looking for a Versteeg type player.

The idea I had in mind was similar to the Thrashers stealing the Hawks players. It was more of a taking advantage of the cap struggling Flyers. If you still value Versteeg, then a deal would never realistically be plausible.
