Flames Do we re-sign Kris Versteeg?

Was a big contributor to the season, with a reasonable contract, do you bring him back to the team next season?

Yep. Re-sign him. One of the top 5 most easily tradable assets I'm the league. If he's not panning out, other playoff teams will take him.

Absolutely. He's dynamite in the playoffs, is a terrific leader, and is a hometown guy.

I'd bring him back for two years, four-five million total.

As long as it is for less than 2.5 million, sure. Too much danger of an injury to give him more.

He was a fantastic middle 6 forward for us this year, plus he won't cost an arm and a leg to re-sign. Absolutely want him back.

Pretty terrible pass at the end of the game, but if he takes the same deal, sure. If he wants more than $2.5 mil then see ya later!

If we can get rid of one or more of Brouwer, Stajan and Bouma then I'm Ok with it.

I hope so! He may take less to play close to Lethbridge.

1 year max. But for sure. I don't think he has the drive to live up to a multi-year deal.

In my opinion, there wasn't enough time to make a good pass, and wasn't enough time to dump it in and keep fighting (with 10 seconds left). They had to go for a super high risk play, and it didn't work out.

Anyways yeah, he was dynamite in the playoffs. I'd take him back in an instant.

As long as he isn't being absolutely ripped off, yes, he would. He wants to be close to Lethbridge.

Best performing player this season relative to contract. What a steal, and so much sweeter that he was stolen from Edmonton.

I think he'll re-sign here on a reasonable deal even if he has other offers, due to familiarity and being close to home.
