The way Tambellini said, "we are going to hold onto him", made me think immediately of Hemsky as he was the other player they were saying they could "hold onto" if they didnt get a deal they loved.
Obviously there was more discussion beforehand, but I still don't think that means the trade was that close. From what I recall, there were Hemsky to NY rumors on deadline day, but again, it may have been a super lowball offer from NY or ridiculous demands from Edmonton.

Without doubt, something was definitely discussed between the two, most likely involving Hemsky, but I still don't feel like this proves that anything was really close.
