Hey Man , not to annoy or bug but you added Versteegs point up wrong he actually totalled 60 not 54 , cuz i was like woah lupul had way more in less games but yeah haha and versteeg doesnt have a kessell but yeah versteeg did amazing last year for like the first 40 50 games he was like a top point getter , good question though man

My Dream would be Sign Shane Doan at any cost and trade for Versteeg.

I would say Lupul.

Nothing against Versteeg but I think Lupul is better.

Although both are sketchy choices, they both have had only one great year after being average before, both could easily go back to just an average years. Although Lupul has scored 25 goals and 55 points before, so he has shown he can be a good player in the past. I would choose him before Versteeg for sure.

That's only my option of course though.

Versteeg. He's a good playmaker. Great guy in the dressing room (just youtube him). His nickname is Verbeauty. Cant beat that.

You can just say no to Lupul right now after the show he put on with Kessel last year.

I would say Lupul if it weren't for the rather frightening injury list he's compiled thus far in his career.

Neither.

Don't want to see Versteeg, the little wigger, in a Canucks uni. He can rap down in Florida where no one cares. 54 pts on Flo top line and PP isn't very impressive.

This is exactly what I was thinking, I would honestly rather have a younger player instead of Doan, I like Lupul.

I can't see the Canucks getting either of those two. It's going to be more of a fire sale and get him out of here to keep him happy rather than teams lined up to trade for him.

If we do this trade, we have a bunch of good young forwards that are big and have some skill
Schroeder and Colborne can battle it out to see who will make this team.
Kassian, Ashton, Jensen could be solid power forwards for us

The problem is, only 3 wingers are actually proven top 6 players. We need one more. D. Sedin, Burrows, Booth and ?

They are both good hockey players but I went with Versteeg. Why? Lupul has a long list of injuries and it won't do us any good if we only get a part time player.

No way Toronto's gonna trade Lupul after his great season, he's their most valued player after Kessel. Plus he has a scary injury history, I wouldn't take a chance. I doubt Florida trades Versteeg either. I wouldn't mind taking him in a Luongo trade, but I don't want to blow up our team to get him. Both would be too expensive for MG

Yeah but I don't think there is any reason to suspect that Versteeg will be able to put up 25+ goals and 50+ points consistently let alone 60+ points like Lupul. (although Lupul is no sure thing either.)

It's a good reason though but I think his major injury days are behind him, I think from now on he will stay just as healthy as any other player.

Both are good players.

Lupul is more fit onto our 1st line.

Versteeg is fit to our 2nd line.

Lupul, has more proven scoring seasons, is bigger/taller (6'1 vs 5'10 and 200+ vs 180+) and has more scoring potential.

Versteeg is younger (26 vs 28), and has won a stanley cup, and has done the points without a consistent top end player on his line.

Either choice is intriguing. I'd prefer doan!

Versteeg over Lupul. Lupul seems 50/50 depending on the team, whereas Versteeg seems to have more consistency wherever he goes.
