[Proposal] VAN-FLA


Recommended Posts

To Van: Kris Versteeg, Jose Theodore, 1st 2013

To Fla: Roberto Luongo, Jannik Hansen

Why for Van?  Luongo wants Florida.  Florida wants Luongo.  Theodore is an experienced goaltender with one year left on his contract so it gives Lack one more year in the AHL.  Versteeg is like Hansen but better in every way and would look great on the 2nd line and get Higgins where he is more comfortable on the 3rd line.

Why for FLA?  Luongo.  Hansen adds grit and speed to the Right side for FLA.  Makes biting the Versteeg bullet reasonable.

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows. . . One of the best lines in hockey.

Booth-Kesler-Versteeg. . . Big fast and now has a legit winger to join them.

Raymond-Lapierre-Higgins. . . Fast and annoying as hell to play against.

Weise-Malhotra-Kassian. . . Keep your head up.

Realistically, FLA and more specifically Tallon won't give up Versteeg as they just re-signed him to a new deal. Tallon brought him to FLA for a reason, and he's not going to let one of his top liners go. Also, Theodore won't agree to move to VAN by waiving his NTC, as reported by a couple of sources.

So, though it's a good attempt at a proposal, it's a non-starter right off the start with those players involved.

Not going to happen.

Who knows if Theodore want's to move or just go to UFA next summer. Why would Florida move Versteeg, who they just signed after the players have said they want to keep as much of the roster the same as last year as they can. That and they're moving a 1st along with everything after the rumours of Luongo alone not being enough for all the other commbinations (Bjugstad, Bjugstad + 1st, Matthias + 1st + prospect, etc) just because we add Hansen?
