    Stalberg should be the happiest guy here — this almost make it automatic, that he will become a very good player.

    Smallish player, but productive in his first two season. I dont know that he will be able to step up to the top two lines and produce though?

    Versteeg is one of the better stick handlers in the nhl, probably was second to kane on the hawks, sad to see him go but hopefully this works out for both teams
