Are you kidding me? Have you seen the numbers Versteeg put up in recent years? He's hot now and looks like a 40-50 pt player, but that's Kovalchuk's basement and you'll say he had a crappy season if he does it. Versteeg was one of those lucky picks that way outperforms his drafted value, which is essential in fantasy hockey, but he's not going to outperform Kovalchuk.
You have to look at it this way. Versteeg is on pace for 80+ points. Do you honestly think he will finish with 80 points? That means his pace from here on out will only go down. You have already missed out on the best time to own him.
