A known versus an unknown... It's not that I'm heavily against what you suggest, fwiw, just that as I said, on balance, what happened makes more sense to me now.

But I think there are reasonable assumptions to be made about what MacArthur would have landed. Probably not quite as much as Versteeg but in the same neighbourhood. I definitely don't think it's a major factor in an argument to keep Mac.

Although, again, the team could have kept both.

..and I think that's a bit myopic when considering this question.

To paraphrase a certain Danish prince, that actually is the question.

Are we running the boiled chicken through the deflavorizing machine again?

another 5 page argument with nik?  This would be okay if half the argument wasn't about what they were arguing over. I don't think trading for Versteeg was a good idea, considering we could have got Dustin Byfuglien or Andrew Ladd with the same package.  Burke thought he was getting a player of similar value, he didn't get that.  I agree with Burke to try and cut the losses Versteeg was shipped out of town.

So is the question lemon or cherry?  How cool would that be to be the Prince of Danishes? 

That would be a lot cooler than Versteeg's Audi.

You know, poorly thought out, improperly capitalized words can still hurt.

He was in a line up to join the Muskoka five.

Anaheim is probably saying the same thing about Lupul (if anyone actually watched hockey there)

Pretty surprising he couldn't get a gig after the year he just had.

Wow, I didn't see it had been that long, I just searched for his name.

Although it does seem like its been 4 years since we've heard from MadFerret.

Chicago is going to find a way to trade a 2nd round pick to the Swiss league at the deadline.
