I was wondering what you guys thought of this trade, I saw it on the Ottawa board:
2011 OTT 2nd Round Pick (35th Overall)
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.
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.
