Comrie just scored and had an idea.

He might be the best type of mentor for one of these kids. He knows the market and the pressures. He's made his mistakes and knows what he'd do different.

Management is probably going to waste 1-1.75million somewhere. Why not on him?

IMO, it depends on whether or not the Oilers draft the Centre or the Winger.

If they draft Seguin, I think Comrie has to walk.

Anyone can make a trade at that point but the players acquired can not play in the playoffs.
I was under the impression you can't make trades until you're out of the playoffs once the season ends.

There's a freeze until after the Stanley Cup final.

non playoff teams can trade with other non playoffs teams the moment their seasons ends and when teams get knocked out they can do trades as well. The NHL does request teams doing block busters deals do not announce them until after the playoffs are over so not to distract the the league

It is very unlikely Hemsky himself is even able to fish the Oil a 1st round pick. If you're lucky and able to package him for a pick it would be something in the 20's and that is still something unlikely to occur. The notion that Hemsky would be able to get us either Seguin or Hall is just complete homerism.

I am sure Hemsky's stock has dropped aswell due to the injury he suffered this year.

Perhaps EDM would then trade that pick to BOS with Hemsky to get the other top 2 guy. That might be more enticing for BOS.

You don't think that Hemsky could net any 1st round pick? That's crazy talk, i happen to think that Hemsky alone won't return a top 5 pick or maybe even a top 10 pick but i'm almost positive that teams drafting 11-30 would trade their first rounder for Hemsky but i'm pretty sure that the Oilers would only include Hemsky in a package for a top 2 or 3 pick.

I think we would have to include our 1st OV as well, and probably take back some bad salary too.

Maybe something like Hemsky, Penner, Gilbert, 1st OV for David Legwand and Nashville's 1st?

There's no way Nashville makes that trade. That package MIGHT get us San Jose or Washington's 1st rounder.

How about Hemsky, Penner, Gilbert, 1st and 2nd round pick for Washington 1st and
2nd rounder, Nylander and the rights to Theodore.

I want Poti back. We need to right old wrongs and continue repairing broken relationships. Any deal with Washington has to begin with him.

Well Hemsky is coming off of major shoulder surgery, I don't see many teams who would want to pull the trigger at this upcoming draft. At any other point Hemsky could garner a mid 1st rounder depending on certain teams shopping etc.

As for packaging something else with the deal it wouldn't be a key player obviously, more along the lines of a peon.

Also the notion that the Oil would offload their 1st rounder to drop salary is also really stupid.

Hemsky is under contract for more than one season at a very reasonable price and is much, much better than any team should have a right to expect any mid-to-late first rounder to ever be.

I DO think the return is higher for the third most productive RW in hockey.

But... they're playing Comrie on the wing...

They're playing him on the fourth line wing (when they play him at all). That probably won't be happening in the Fall when we've got a full roster.

Then again, Quinn didn't like him at C when he was playing with O'Sullivan, so maybe you're right.

As much as I love Hemsky he is no where near being the third most productive RW in the NHL let alone hockey.

This is something that statistics would back up quite nicely. Shame i'm too lazy to look them up.

I would love for someone to prove me wrong -- but looking at the stats I didn't see anything to support his statement.
