Trade Rumors and Proposals Thread III: "Hemsky Off The Market" - MacT Presser

Why don't the Oilers acquire a guy like John Scott to play in the top 6?

Take a look at great coaches that have done this and it has yielded great results. Glen Sather put Dave Semenko, Essa Tikkanen and Marty McSorely to be boat anchors on Gretzky's wing and he did just fine.

John Scott stands at 6 foot 8 and weighs in at 270+ lbs.

Imagine a top 9 lineup of:

Scott - RNH - Yakupov
Hall - Gagner - Eberle
Perron - Lander - Hemsky

We would be a whole 6 foot 8 taller and now no one will mess with Nuge. It'll be like perpetually playing one man short for security reasons. Nuge is good enough to feed it off Scott's bum once in a while. He could be a 15 goal scorer.

REMEMBER KIDS: Height and weight = 2-way ability!
