Diddle now we can't rag on the leafs for not having a first round pick Crying

I think it's a 1st and 3rd. Great deal for TO.

First thing that comes to mind is that they got more than we got for Fisher. Dunno why that would be, but...yeah...Holmgren can't keep it in his pants.

in the end it probably works out to the same if you think about it. Look at where Philly is in the standings and then look at nashville. I'm just hoping nashville doesn't go to the conference finals, but if they do, that conditional turns into a 2nd rounder for us. So really....who gets the better deal? I still say Ottawa

Versteeg has similar numbers to Fisher, is 1.2M less of a cap hit and is still only an RFA after next season. Unless the Flyers fall apart and don't advance past the 1st round of the playoffs, I think we got slightly more value.

Philly may very well win the cup. Don't think so.

Also, Capgeek already updated. wow.

exactly we did get more value. even if nashville moves further than philly in the playoffs, then we get a 2nd rounder to boot. we can't lose...

another selling point? like you said, versteeg is still young...24 years old. Fisher is 30. Please let's not be fooled by the numbers game in terms of who got more in quantity

True enough, it's a 30th pick vs a 20th pick.

The forwards corps of the Flyers is now the most amazing thing I've seen since Anaheim in 06-07.

EDIT: Top 9:
Hartnel Briere Leino
Carter Richards Zherdev
JVR Giroux Versteeg

Good luck Crosby Toronto trades Versteeg to Philly for 1st rounder + 3rd rounder 270956

I don't know how Philly can get a goalie now, they are out of cap space big time.

They also have a very good defense.. The only question is in goal.

Boston & Pitts now will have to step up to try to keep pace.

Pitts will get the injured players back (except Malkin). They could really use Ruutu & Kovalev though. We won't ask for much. LOL

Boston -- has the goaltending and the D. They need to upgrade the forward position since they lost Savard?

I'm surprised at how many 1st rounders are being shipped away so far. IMO Fisher and Versteeg shouldn't carry that kind of value..... The Flyers are STACKED big time up front now, very scary team.

We should do everything possible to get Pitts' 1st rounder before it's too late Toronto trades Versteeg to Philly for 1st rounder + 3rd rounder 270956
