Unless Washington is willing to part with Alzner or Carlson, I see no reason for us to move Sam. If Hamrlik or Schultz is what they are offering, Gagner's name shouldn't even approach the table if I am Tambo.
Team 1260 just said the best offer for Hemsky was a 2nd and 4th (from Nashville) and that's why they decided to keep him.
I'm even more glad they signed him to that two year deal.
I honestly doubt anyone knows (or will know) for sure what the best offer was for Hemsky... but I wouldn't doubt a 2nd and a 4th (or a 2nd and a minor prospect) was the best return they had on the table.
I think the Oilers would have moved him if a 1st or decent dman would have been coming back.
The entire TSN panel systematically ripping on the Flames prospect pool. I guess it isn't only us and Nuck fans that can recognize this. Flames fans are probably in hysterics over what they said about their good "young team."
