1. Versteeg was only traded because we couldn't keep him.
2. He has the same value like he did last year.

3. I would want him back but it won't happen. I can see him going to WPG and be their Top6 RW

I think the Flyers actually try to hang onto Versteeg. He had a tough time finding chemistry this year, but he has talent. Give him some time to boost up his value and he could be a valuable asset again.

Holmgren lost the Versteeg trade because the Flyers are not playing right now. Same reason he lost the Gagne trade (badly!).

He won the Pronger deal and the Leino trade (huge win!) because the Flyers went to the Cup final right after.

If the Flyers skate around with the Cup this time next year and Versteeg is an element of that success then he will have won that trade.

Flyers fans are lucky because this is the only element that the organization cares about.

Flyers fans are unlucky because since the mid 70's the team and organization can't seem to get the last step climbed.

He can be a guy that plays on your this line and gives you depth scoring. He would be able to fill in on the second line but is best at the third line. At 3 million he isn't too overpaid for what he does. He just wouldn't get much simply because of Phillys cap position.

He s worth more than what he will get.

Well, Gagne indirectly brought in Mez though...

I say a package with Versteeg to Dallas for Brendan Morrow, Morrow fits well for that team.

Versteeg
Hartnell/Leino
2012 1st

for

Morrow
Maybe the worse proposal ever.
