Nothing like having veteran experience and leadership in the line up.
Veteran leadership in the right context sure, but veteran leadership from two players that have as much success as our younger group is a waste of space. We have been down the "veteran" road. 9th place is not fun lol.

Hemsky had 42 points in 47 games that season (2010/2011) and the season beforehand he had a point a game for 22 games... Yeah he's been injured but if you're talking about consistency and who is the better player when healthy you should probably stop because you're going to look like a fool.

Hemsky has had one awful season (out of 9) which happens to be last year AND he still managed to put up more points than Kulemin while playing less games. Kulemin has had one great season (out of 4) in which he scored 30 goals. I laugh when leaf fans say he's a 30 goal scorer, his average for his 4 years in the NHL is 17 goals a year right now so technically you wouldn't even be able to call him a 20 goal scorer.

It's fine to compare Kulemin's physicality or his defensive game to Hemsky's, but Hemsky is definitely the better, and most proven offensive player.

Exactly. No deal.

I think what everyone is trying to say here is:

Gunnarsson > Schultz

Hemsky when healthy >>> Kulemin.

Yet the transactions for these players specificially don't help Toronto in areas of need as much as it does Edmonton.

The Oilers could live or even improve moving Hemsky out for Kulemin and swapping D-Men. Toronto would suffer if they lost Gunner and Kules.

Leafs pass? umm no they don't they get a BIG top 6 upgrade in Hemsky, a 2nd rounder in what is soposed to be the deepeds draft in 10 years and a HUGE D man for Kuliemin who does NOT have as Hemsky, and Gunnar who I like a lot but not convinced he will be ket with Nonis at the helm

Sums it up pretty well. That said, I still think Kessel would benefit massively from having Hemsky on his wing instead of Lupul

I fully agree with this statement, but considering the games played by Hemsky the past three years are 22, 47, and 69 I don't like the Leafs odds of winning this deal.

Does Hemsky play on the left side at all because Kessel plays RW exclusively so I don't see how you can line them up together?

I wouldn't do this as an oiler fan because we're giving up the best and third best player. Hemsky is still an elite player, one bad season doesn't define his otherwise 9 or so season great career. Hes always flirted with ppg in every Season except for last, and that is without ever playing with a true number one center. Hemmer is going to be the perfect player to feed yakupov all year and there is no reason to believe he cant put up 70 points this year with him and gagner. He's had injury issues but is healthy now so we can't discount him right now for that. Gunnarsson is better than Schultz but Schultz is one of the best leaders/mentors in the league. Players in Minny were crushed when he had to go. So even though gunnarsson is better on the ice, Schultz makes up the difference in value off the ice.

Another bad trade where neither team would do it.

Hell NO to the trade. I'm a big huge fan of Hemsky and N. Schultz. If I'm Tambo I try to lock up Schultz for another 3 yrs. at around 4M per/season. The Oilers can't be trading every veteran away and go with youth. We have Klefbom coming in the next few yrs. All that's missing is #1 dman. Hemsky, a righty, will have a career yr feeding, a lefty, Yakupov.
