That would be the only condition under which I accept Hemsky in a deal. There are zero conditions under which the proposed deal or any deal like it would be acceptable. The number of physical wingers we have is arguably our only offensive strength, and something we're going to be leaning hard on going into the year.

I'd be very happy to add Hemsky (getting a skilled playmaking RW would be absolutely killer)... but this ain't the way it's gonna get done, nor do I see any ideas that would work to the mutual advantage of Columbus and Edmonton.

Also, the suggestion that Potter is somehow superior to Moore/Savard makes me laugh. If we want a bench-warmer, we'll re-sign Lebda; he did an acceptable job.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
