    help for LW

    Watch Versteeg closely... he is going to be getting big minutes on the Leafs

    maybe he'll be worth a FA pick up over Perron

    • Versteeg is gonna blow this year.

      Didn't he play on the second line with Hossa and Sharp most of last year when he only managed 44 points? Playing with Kessell and Bozak or Grabovski is a giant downgrade in linemates this year. Sure the extra 2 minutes a game might net him a few more points but he's not going to break 60, will be a giant minus, and the rest of his secondary stats suck.

      The right answer to this question is move Marleau over and look for a center. There are always useful centers on FA who blow away the bottom 3rd of rostered LWs.
