To Oil fans regarding a Hemsky to NYR idea.
The problem is that Nash has been almost exclusively used at RW. Callahan is the 2nd line RW. Torts is playing Gaborik at LW, moving him around lines, it's not working, but he won't switch Nash and Cally can't play LW. If he won't do it to get Gaborik going, he won't play Hemsky at RW over Nash on the top 2 lines.
The questions of player value and merits of trading a younger D for an older F are pretty much irrelevant here. Until Tortorella gets fired or Hemsky plays productively at LW for the Oil, there's no fit for him on NYR's top 2 lines.
