Leafs Acquire Kris Versteeg

New, comments

Brian Burke has added a top six forward. Versteeg is a 20 goal guy who will look good wearing the blue and white. I know a lot of people here like Viktor Stalberg but Stalberg is actually older than Versteeg. I'll be sad to see Chris DiDomenico leave but there's a fair chance with his femur injury he'll never skate fast enough to dominate in the NHL. Phillippe Paradis is a garbage prospect.

Best of luck to the three players leaving Toronto tonight but remember the adage we all learned when we got Gilmour: you win the trade when you get the best player. We got the best player.
