Nor should we even consider bringing him back... unless he is signing for $1M or below... he is so limited in what he brings... cannot switch wings... can not play C... is not a grinder... can not PK... he would be a power play specialist at this point of his career and even then we have four better wingers (Hall Perron Eberle Yak)... no it is time to say good bye to that train as it has left the station:

Hall-RNH-Eberle
Perron-?-Yakupov
Hendricks-Gordon-? (big physical winger)
UFA-Arcobello/UFA-UFA
Gazdic Joensuu

Odds are Hemmer goes to an OTT or BUF or even Calgary (yuck)... or he could just take an offer back home... point is he no longer fits here and has not really since 2012.
