Nashville and Edmonton (Hemsky)

Briefly mentioned by Elliotte Friedman in "30 Thoughts", his weekly column...

Quote:
There are a few reports the Oilers are trying to get Nashville to offer either blue-liner Ryan Ellis or Jon Blum/a first-rounder for Hemsky. For what it's worth, one source (not Poile) said Monday that the Predators are not interested.
Thoughts?

Either of those would be wins for the Oilers.

interesting how the Oilers value Ellis a lot more then Blum

I think the Ellis trade would be great for Edmonton, he'll be a key member in their youth movement with Hall, RNH, Eberle and their 1st rounder

This was talked about before in this forum. I am guessing that is perhaps what Nashville offered last year when hemsky was playing well and a year left on his contract. Tablellini is now back asking for the that deal this year that he turned down last year and Nashville is telling him to stuff it rightfully so.

At this point, I wouldn't put anything past Slow-Hand Tambellini.

Pretty much exactly what HFoil fans have been asking Nashville for, I think Edmonton would be willing to add a pick to even out the deal.

a poster on HFOil posted this proposal


Ryan Ellis
1st round pick


Sam Gagner
Ales Hemsky

The only problem with that is it leaves Edmontons top 6 pretty thin meaning they'd need to land Yakupov or Grigorenko in this years draft

Ellis or Blum for a broken-ass Hemsky?

Dream big, Tambo...dream big.

I could see a 2nd or third round pick and a mid range prospect going for Hemsky but not Ellis or Blum. I don't think Poile is that dumb.

I don't think Hemsky is worth much to be honest, I think Oiler fans may be disappointed with the return regardless. That being said, Nashville could use a little injection of skill and that's exactly what Hemsky would bring.

I wouldn't completely be opposed to Hemsky, but if that's the asking price, I hope Poile puts Tambellini on call block until after the trade deadline.

I am leaning toward Oilers re-signing Hemsky. He's been playing very well this month and seems to be healthy again. If Oilers cannot get a 1st out of him, might as well keep him and draft Dumba/Murray/Grigorenko.

Motivation could be a big factor in Hemskys recent play. What does he have to play for?

With the way Ellis has played since call up, I can't see him moving outside of a deal for a signed, young top six forward--a component in a deal for someone like Ryan or Carter.

His next contract. Players tend to play really hard in their last year so they can sign a contract for lots of money after the season is done.

Budget team. Can't afford to trade d prospects for an unsigned Hemsky when one of/both Weber and Suter could be leaving

Sounds like Nashville is kind of out of the running for Hemsky.

I'd be surprised if a team offered more than a 2nd and a decent prospect.
His scoring pace is that of a low end 2nd liner (43 points in 82 games), he's very injury prone, and an upcoming UFA.

If Edmonton thinks they can get a 1st and/or a team's top prospect, they'll end up getting nothing for him and Hemsky will sign elsewhere July 1st.

Is there a player more over valued by their own organization/fan base than Hemsky? If he's as valuable as everyone in EDM thinks, why wouldn't other teams have lined up to get him in previous years and off seasons?

His value has only been falling ever the last few years, sure he's having a nice year now, nothing to gush over, but not to the extent that his value has climbed back to where it once was. If he's so valuable, why does everyone in Edmonton want him traded so badly? Keep him if that's the case.

Unless the asking price drops, I would say that everyone is out of the running for Hemsky.

I'm sorry but a player like Hemsky isn't going to return a high end prospect like Ellis or Blum. These types of prospects are never traded for rentals. Rental players usually only get a mid-grade prospect or one whose value was once high, but has fallen considerably.

I'm happy that Tambellini knows that this is the kind of return that Hemsky's talent level should yield. It's unfortunate that Hemsky's injury history and shoulder issues have sullied his image.

I, for one, hope that Tambellini is shrewd enough to hold on to Hemmer if he's unable to get a favourable return.

This is a team that needs NHL players right now and later. Hemsky is a very good one who happens to like it in Edmonton. Why throw that away if you aren't going to get the assets you expect in that deal?
