Depending how this season unfolds I wouldn't be surprised if Tambo went after Getzlaf as a rental if he's not willing to resign in Anaheim.
You've kind of hit the nail on the head...it really matters what Edmonton's timeline for being a "contender" is. If it's this year, good on them...and you're right, if that were the case they would NOT be in a position to deal Hemsky this year.

Anyhow, we'll gladly take Gagner off your hands
