Hagman could have helped last years Oiler team. This year I'd simply pass on him. He obviously has very little value in the league right now so the idea of flipping him at the deadline next year is little more than a pipe dream.

He might be able to find a role on this team if we move out Penner or Hemsky. But if those two are sticking with the team past the deadline at the end of the week we won't need Hagman.

If we did get him (and one or both of Penner and Hemsky are gone) I suspect he'd be best suited in a second line role with 2nd PK unit time. He has the talent to be a good player in that role.
That deal looked bad back in the day and it looks bad now. They got no body for Dion Phaneuf, you couldve gotten a lot more IMO, didnt they say GMs didnt even know Dion was moving?
