Wing Men - where will they land?

Wingers: On the Block and Top Remaining UFAs
Rick Nash
Bobby Ryan
Shane Doan
Ales Hemsky
Alex Semin (UFA)
Andrei Kostitsyn (UFA)


Teams Looking for a Sniper
Darren Dreger ‏@DarrenDreger 2:26 PM - 4 Jul 12: Ball now in CBJ court. Det, Pitt, NYR, Phil, SJ all on the list with Carolina possible. Has to be a "homerun" in that group.


So if I take that list and match the teams up with names, here is what makes the most sense to me:

NYR - Rick Nash
PHI - Bobby Ryan
PIT - Ales Hemsky
DET - Alex Semin (UFA)
SJS - Shane Doan
CAR - Andrei Kostitsyn (UFA)


How about your guesses?

It's funny that even after he just resigned for 2 years Hemsky is still a top trade rumor. Hemsky will play for Edmonton. That is a no brainer.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Doan in Dallas. I think Nash to NYR is the most likely, as is Semin to DET.

Supposedly the Jets are still in talks with Kyle Wellwood, but if signs elsewhere I could see us going after Semin or more likely Kostitsyn.

NYR - Rick Nash
PHI - Bobby Ryan
PIT - Huselius
DET - Alex Semin
SJS - will flame out on Nash and stand still or sign a 3rd line wing...maybe Kyle Wellwood (I can see him returning to SJ)
CAR - Andrei Kostitsyn

Mueller and Wolski will probably wait and be someone's last minute grasp at a Top 6 wing.

Nash - CBJ
Ryan - NYR
Semin - DET
Doan - PHX
Huselius - SJS
Kostitsyn - CAR


I doubt we end up with Ryan, but I have no interest in Nash at this point. He's a good player, but Howson is out of his mind and we just finished first in the East and were 1 game away from the SCF. I don't feel compelled to shake things up enough to land Nash.

It will require similar assets to acquire Ryan.

I'm aware, but I think Ryan is the better, younger, cheaper player who will be in his prime for longer. I also think Howson has turned down good offers that other GMs would have given more consideration to because he knows that without a king's ransom in return and a very different season in Columbus, he is likely on the hot-seat. I also suspect Anaheim's needs might be slightly different and we might be able to put together a package that's more attractive to them without moving assets Howson demands. Most importantly though, if we're going to cough up that kind of package, I'd simply rather it be for Ryan. He's younger, very comparable statistically (IMO, better) and his contract is 2.7M less.

GMJN is done signing people, unless Doan takes a big discount to play on the 3rd line here.

If he really is asking for 4-5 years, no way we touch that.

Here are my predictions:

Nash - CBJ (Unless Howson drops the price, he's not moving)
Ryan - ANA (He's not exactly available, and I don't see Philly or any other team offering the overpayment required)
Hemsky - EDM (he just got re-signed...)
Doan - PHX (I think they manage to keep him. If the ownership doesn't work out, it's SJ or bust though)
Semin - DET (Perfect fit for a team about to really be put to the test)
Kostitsyn - I have no idea, really.

Try the other way around. Chevy is still looking to upgrade, and the most obvious is the 2nd RW spot. I think Wellwood is our backup plan, not our first option.

The caps need a winger who can put pucks in the net. I'm hoping GMGM goes after Ryan since he obviously has no interest in FA acquisitions.

Hemsky is not getting traded.

If he does, I'd speculate it's to Dallas, but that's about it. It's still unlikely.

Why Dallas? We just signed Whitney who plays a similar role, and we need stopgaps, not long term contracts.

Unless he's dirt cheap, no thanks.

Here is where I think they will land and what their traded/signed for.

Rick Nash - (NYR) for Dubinsky, Del Zotto, and a 1rst
Bobby Ryan - (PHI) for Simmonds, Couturier, and a 1rst
Alex Semin - (DET) for $5,500,000
Shane Doan - (TOR) for $4,000,000
Ales Hemsky - (SJS) for Murray, and a 2nd
Andrei Kostitsyn - (CLB) for 2,500,000
