Lemme put it this way. Our medical staff over here is not what you would call the class of the NHL.

I'm not sure what y'all see when you look at Hemsky. At this point what I see is another Kristian Huselius. A straight-up deal for Brassard is probably not in the cards, but we wouldn't be adding much... and the injury risk still makes me flinch.

"A pick" is accurate if you're talking a 2nd rather than a 3rd.

Er. Not necessarily. Quality-for-quantity offers are pretty rare, and generally only made by teams that are lacking depth in general and need to stock up. That can happen with centers and RWs, but LWs are frequently in high supply around the league. Expecting to trade multiple LWs to patch RW issues is probably not a good idea.

Er. I made no such proposal. Mentioning that Hemsky would be a target (and not ideal for what we're looking for, incidentally) is not the same as asking for him for Brass straight up.

We may have to agree to disagree on Hemsky's value.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
