Hemsky might be of interest but Phoenix would demand more long term assets with high end potential up front.

It's a hard trade scenario but I think an overpayment of Hemsky, Gagner, and MPS is what I would likely need to consider before I would pull the trigger on a player like Yandle. Not sure what else up front Phoenix would include to make cash and total number of contracts work. Of course this assumes that those three names would work in a Dave Tippett system which I'm not sold on.
There is no way that I am trading Hemsky, Gagner and MPS for Yandle, EDM needs a more physical dman not another puck mover that can't function when the fwds are hitting him hard like Yandle proved in the playoffs.

I would go after a smaller deal. I would do a deal around Gormley.
