I think if he's traded whoever gets Mark Stuart will get an excellent player. I want Yzerman to either trade for him now or go hard after him July 1.

I think the Hemsky picks are spot on. He still has some talent. He just needs to go to the right situation.

As far as guys that are potential rentals that I don't see mentioned often: David Legwand, Matt Stajan, Henrik Tallinder, Andrew MacDonald, Olli Jokinen.

Those aren't "sexy names" by any means but those are guys that could definitely put a team over the edge, potentially. At the very least, all guys that could play on a 2nd/3rd line or a 2nd pairing. And, most importantly, all should be available as UFA's on crappy teams.

1-2 sandpaper grit players added to pittsburghs bottom six would debatably improve the team more than a top six winger for the playoffs.

Moves like that get little press but pay out heavy in the post season.

Someone out there actually wants Chris Phillips?

Holy sweet hell, we'll take whatever you want to give for that guy.

I'll throw Kulemin's name in here. He could be very good on the right team.

The Avs have 3 solid D but the rest are bad. I mean real bad. I could see an AHL guy who cant crack their team's roster due to numbers and the fact that they are on an 2 way contract be moved to the Avs and make an upgrade right away.

Somebody like Simon Despres, Brandon Gormley and even an underrated Zach Redmond step up and be huge for the Avs down the stretch.

I want guys like Ott and Kopecky more so than a top 6 guy for Sid's RW.

TBH, trading Franson for a TWD of equal value would immensely help the Leafs as they are struggling defensively and Franson is a big part of that... I don't know if it will help the other team or not, it depends on their situation. Franson will be a big boost to a PP and help improve offense from the defense, but is best in a sheltered role (he's also pretty physical if a team is looking for that).

However, if a team trades for Kulemin it could make a big difference for that team and hurt the leafs a lot IMO. He just does so much for us on the defensive side and can put up some points if he plays with offensive players too.

On the other hand, trading for Mayson Raymond will not help any team IMO (Don't like the guy despite his point totals, he's just too soft and selfish).

I doubt he'll be cleared in time for the deadline, but Stephane Robidas.

Also, Ray Whitney.

Upshall and Weaver would be good depth pick-ups IMO.

A little off topic, but fits the question. Trading Piskula for McGratton made a big difference for the flames.

I consider McGratton an "impact" player tbh. He always has an impact on the ice and in the locker room.

For me it's got to be Chris Phillips, if he gets traded he brings a real steady presence to the back end of any team in the league.
Phillips is straight up horrible, I'd love to see him out of Ottawa. Guy has been pissing me off for years.

Nik Kulemin will be a big-time soldier for someone in the playoffs. I just hope it's the Leafs.

Legwand to the Blues would be "minor" given the names they've been tied to thus far (Miller/Callahan). But I think that getting Legwand would be a great move for the team, definitely more so than trading for Callahan.

Whoever ends up with Kulemin to be honest. The guy is great, versatile and defensively solid with a good release. If put into an offensive role he can thrive.

Brian Connelly for Brad Winchester. Might not sound much, but it could make a real difference down the road. We traded an AHL D-man for a 4th line wing, and it means not having to play Veilleux or Rupp every night.

In 2009, we traded a 4th (#99) and a 5th (#133) for Kyle Brodziak and a 6th (#161). Since then, Brodziak has been our 3rd line center and has 134 points in 352 games. And the 6th? Well, we drafted Darcy Kuemper with it, who has been really solid this season with Harding and Bäckström out. SV% of 92.1 and 2.29 GAA in 16 games is not too shabby for a rookie goaltender at all.

The underlying logic in my comment that Hemsky would be better suited than most to Crosby has everything to do with the fact that Hemsky thinks the game at a much faster pace than most do. The problem with Hemsky has always been that he doesn't always make the right decision at a high speed, but he certainly has the ability to do so. Now, that's not to say that Crosby will somehow bestow upon Hemsky the metaphysical ability to know right from wrong when playing NHL hockey at high speeds, but Hemsky does already have that instinctual hockey sense that will allow him to react at high speeds to what Crosby gives him. More so than Seto (potentially), Guerin, Dupuis, Kunitz, Iggy, and all those before him, IMO.
It wasn't so much a Dupuis/Hemsky comparison, but a general observation. Lots of people say well so and so would put up a ton of points along side Crosby, as if he's solely responsible for a 20+ point increase in said players production. He's not. When I looked at Dupuis, I went though their game by game log (it was a pain in the ass). In games where both players played (no clue if they played together, but I assume yes), Dupuis produced at a 0.05 PPG rate higher than when Crosby was out (Crosby missed some significant time over that period).

As for Hemsky, I'd have no issues with him coming here. I wish he was more of a shooter, but that aside, I still think he could do well here.
