Pretty much. Our #1 need is a sniper/goal scorer. A playmaking Hemsky, while nice when he is temporarily put back together, still doesn't provide us with what we need. As far as team need goes, Cammy is a more attractive option, though that is where the comparison ends, as Hemsky is better is most other facets. Still, neither player helps us or is all that appealing.

Lombardi was right, which may allude hopefully to his job status as well, LA has no gun to their head to do anything. We have players that should be able to fulfill their roles, are young, signed long term and reasonably. There is no reason to panic and sell the farm for a quick fix. Though, he comes off a bit as a dreamer if he is expecting lightning to strike twice after the Richards trade. Still, with an offseason like a potential Parise out there, who knows...
