trade details..

My question is... Do they really need more forwards?!?!?

Edited by Majsheppard, 14 February 2011 - 06:20 PM.

"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Flyers are scary. <_<

Good move by the Leafs, they need all the picks they can get.

Ken Holland: Hes (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, hes a puck hound.

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.

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

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

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.

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