Why don't you just sign him?
He'd be perfect in a short season - but his pros and cons are mirrored in two younger players that are already on the team (Tedenby and Butler) - Lou wants to give them a shot and hope they can become a long term solution as opposed to a short term bandaid.

It's basically sink or swim time for Tedenby, and Butler's only under contract for this year.

Sykora's lack of speed can make him a liability on any line that doesn't have the perfect set of linemates for him.

I would. I love Hemsky. But... this particular proposal never ends well around here.
