Hemsky to Ottawa

What would be fair value for him?

Ottawa needs a scoring winger, has the room to take on a bad contract for a year, and may be willing to take a chance on a guy that needs to bounce back.

Ottawa has plenty of prospects/picks available

IMO Ottawa would be better just to sign one of the UFA like Clarkson, Weiss, Filppula, Horton. Hemsky is to injured prone and is'nt worth $5 million that Edmonton signed him to I cant see any body giving a prospect for Hemsky maybe a 4th rd pick at the most.

Michalek - Spezza - Hemsky

Very awsome top line, Amazing hands, has speed and skill, snipers, playmaking, makes me drool.

and on the power play we could run

Turris - Spezza - Hemsky

Hemsky is going to be 30 to start next season, hes not old at all, and its not too late for him to put his injuries behind him.

Hemsky can easily score 20 -30 goals on spezza's wing.

What i would offer Edmonton, Gryba (6'4 huge shut down d, he was averaging 22 mins a night in ottawa when Karlsson was out ) and Dallas 4th round pick. just to add the value,

the only problem is Edmonton won't take it, because there are a lot of dumb gm's willing to overpay for a good winger, and Paul Maclean has a man crush on Gryba

This would actually be a great move for Ottawa.

Problem is that they're an injury prone team, and they should be looking for more dependable players.

Also, they tried the injury-project player in Latendresse last season, and that didn't work out too well.


With that said, I really think Hemsky and Michalek would make a great line with either of the top-2 Sens Cs.

Im in the boat of trying to acquire Hemsky and have been since the day before he signed that 2yr deal.. Although he's injury prone I think he'd excel here.

Gryba+4th? Yes please (even without the 4th).

Z.Smith? Yes please.

Wiercioch? Yes please.

OTT has plenty of what EDM needs.

I would do something around

Hemsky + Musil/Gernat

for

Wiercioch + O'brien

or

Hemsky + Musil/Gernat + ana 2nd

Wiercioch + Z. Smith

would prefer the second trade but don't know if enough for Ott

Da Costa is the most I would offer for Hemsky.

Why complicate things by adding 2 of our best D prospects? Keep it simple. Hemmer for Wiercioch. Add late round picks where necessary.

I meant one of Musil or Gernat, Who I think might have higher ceilings then Wiercioch, but are a couple years behind him in development.

I would for sure do Hemmer for Wier but think would have to sweeten pot a bit for Ott.

I hate the idea of trading Hemsky because every single possibility the Oilers are giving up the better player. It's a shame.

I'm OK with Smith for Hemsky straight up. Seems like a trade which addresses both teams' needs.

Hemsky is overpaid and a UFA at season's end, I feel like we should receive a little bit of insurance on this trade.

While Smith is on a great contract for four more years.

Thats my only problem with Hemsky straight up.

One of Wierd or Gryba has to leave and since we already have methot and cowen, a player of Grybs abilitiy is expendable, if you would do smith we would run Spezza, Turris, Zibby - Pageau, if spezza gets injured and pageau starts to play like he is not ready yet for the nhl were ****ed .

Thats why i'd rather do (DaCosta / Gryba) + Mid Pick for Hemsky, we lose players that wont cost us, and we gain a player that will instantly make our team better

I would trade Borowiecki then, hes worse then both Wier or Gryba. Not a fan of his game at all.

Injuries happen in a season this is my defense going into next year,

Methot - Karlsson
Cowen - Phillips
Wier/Benoit - Gryba
Wier/Benoit

Maybe at the deadline we can find a "FA" defense ur talking about but there arent any available right now that interest me at all for the 3-4 spot.

Trading Z.Smith may hurt a little but I think it can be overcome by Spezza, Turris, Zibby, Pageau, Hoffman, Grant, O'Brien.

Grybas not going anywhere.

Borowieki is the Captian in Bingo. He will stay in Bingo unless injuries.

Wiercioch is replacing Gonchar.

so ya, no Defenceman has to go anywhere.
