I don't know what makes you think that Jagr or Whitney would be any better mentors. In fact I'd think that it isn't the case for Jagr (history speaks) and that Whitney isn't a HOFer anyway. In any case a HOFer isn't necessarily a good coach or mentor (ref. Gretzky).
I don't know them personally so not drawing any hasty conclusions, but if Edmonton decided not go after anybody, it's most likely because the team was in good shape with its leaders which includes Hemsky and he seems fine in this short seasons start.
