It's time we started trading for actual players rather than just prospects.
I'd even do Hemsky and a guy like Gernat for Korpikoski
Hemsky is pretty tempting as a potential top-line skill without having to pay the full price; at the cost of some risks. The only issue is that he is a defensive liability, which I'm not sure would work at all in Tippet's system. If a system is more run-and-gun, then I can see him working out.
