All the credit might just go to you if they make the playoffs.

The next 20 hours will be pins and needles.
Rumors flying that Versteeg was pulled to protect him for an impending trade.

Canes will have to make a hard push if they want into the playoffs. But that doesn't look likely.

Funny you mention it: my Kings are interested in Versteeg.

I think Francis made the right call here and from what I've seen via YouTube the guy we are getting in return has some very good puck handling skills and is very good on his skates. Plus Carolina has gotten some pretty good players in the second round in recent years, Justin Faulk for example was picked at #37 in 2010. Letting Eric go for nothing in the offseason, playoffs or not, is the last thing this team needs right now. Thats the kind of decision that can set a franchise back years.

While I'm not yet off the playoff train, it's not looking good right now but if management plays their cards right, we could be seeing a playoff contender soon.

Report: L.A. Kings acquire forward Kris Versteeg from Hurricanes
Seems like a done deal.

Wonder if Francis has anything else brewing? 3pm tomorrow is the deadline.

We're rather bare in the winger department so getting one is a nice return for us.
