Mike Fisher and Versteeg are both worth first round picks and more eh?

This is why I am happy Holland is our GM. Sometimes the deals he doesn't make are the best.

Fixed.

And I suppose. Versteeg will be a real nice fit for this team. Philly just getting stronger.

Well some 1st round picks dont even end up in the NHL. I suppose if they want a *sure* thing than yes this is a good deal.

wink.gif Fans helping fans. It's a lovely concept.

Remaining on the topic, I guess, I hate the Flyers.

A 1st and a 3rd for Versteeg is overpayment. Philly didn't want to give up a roster player.

I would assume its going to be a very late 1st round pick as they are currently going to end in the top 3 of the conference.

Agreed, they went with the win now at all costs approach for a decent young player.

wow Philly is going to be scary. If they weren't cup favorites before hand they defiantly are now assuming they go into the playoffs healthy.

That's really not much of a overpayment either(if any) imo. Hes young and is a proven 20 goal+ player with solid playoff numbers.

So no matter your age, 40-55 point potential gets you at least a first and another early round draft pick. Seems steep.

he has more points than Filppula the last 2 seasons and i dont think kenny would give him up for a 1st and 3rd rounder, so i dont think they overpaid. maybe im wrong. i am a stupidhead after all.

He's 24 years old?

Considering the mish-mash of underwhelming prospects Burke gave up for Versteeg, getting a 1st rounder back is pretty good.

Holland would turn that down because Filppula is the better player. Filppula is superior defensively, but Versteeg has a slight edge offensively.

Yes, he's 24? Mike Fisher got the same trade value and he's much older.

Wow, they are going to completely roll over The Nucks in the finals.

Ahhh crap, games are played on paper this year eh?

might be true, but its just not in the numbers...

Until the end of May/beginning of June come, the numbers are really all we have to base this on so far....

If Burke doesn't flip those picks into a good/decent roster player than I think the leafs lost yet another trade. Being picked in the first round doesn't guarantee a good player.
