WHy in the hell would Edmonton want that deal????

Hemsky is young, and he plays at a point per game pace, surrounded by absolutely no-one.

You want to give them:

Grachev: a scoring prospect, that his own team, that is having tremendous scoring difficulty, isn't inserting into the line-up for help? Our NYR offense and scoring has been a mess for months, and yet Torts and SLats don;t appear to have any faith at all that Grachev can step in and help. Bust.

Christensen: LOLreally? Nobody wanted him on the waiver wire, and aside from about a dozen strong moments in games last season he's been an ineffective center. Nope.

The 2nd and 3rd in '11 mean nothing to a team that isn't looking for role players but some serious talent (like Edm). Edm is looking for teams with early 2nd's and 1st's if it's going to move it's premeir top talent.

MDZ: would be a piece in a deal that would bring back Hemsky. But you;d have to offer significantly more, as any team that wants Hemsky, is giving up a ton more than you offered.
