On Tuesday’s show we tackled two huge news stories involving former Blackhawks, Dustin Byfuglien and Kris Versteeg as well as listener emails and topics involving the Rockford IceHogs and their recent struggles.
We discussed Dustin Byfuglien’s 5-year $26 million contract extension in Atlanta and how, if at all, it will impact the Blackhawks negotiations with impending restricted free agent Brent Seabrook. On Monday, Kris Versteeg was traded for the second time in eight months and we have the breakdown on Versteeg’s move to Philadelphia. We revisit the June trade that sent Versteeg to Toronto and evaluate and compare the return against what Toronto received from the Flyers this week.
Also, we have excerpts from a Kyle Beach interview discussing his play and criticisims and Bill Peters evaluating the progress of Hawks’ prospect Chris DiDomenico, who is one of the pieces acquired from Toronto in exchange for Kris Versteeg. In the emails, we discuss the possibility of Nick Leddy becoming a power play “quarterback”, the Hawks’ 50-man roster and obvious error on CapGeek, what’s keeping Kyle Beach in the AHL, probability of Marty Turco being traded and much more.
