Edmonton (Hemsky) / Montreal (Eller)

EDM 2RW Ales Hemsky for MTL 3C Lars Eller + decent pick

EDM Reasoning: Hemsky is unlikely to return a premier forward, d-man or goalie. Thus, getting ahead of the curve, EDM should look to replace Horcoff as the 3C sooner rather than later. Hemsky could be used to acquire that 3C. Eller is big, strong, fast, responsible, but his hockey sense is better suited for the third line (much like Paajarvi IMO). Eller is signed for another season at $1.325M.

MTL Reasoning: Lars Eller has been displaced by Alex Galchenyuk at 3C. MTL could use a winger for Plekanec while MaxPac is on IR. Hemsky and Plekanec have played on the same CZE national team numerous times, meaning there could be some instant chemistry between them. At $5.5M, Hemsky is signed for another season and should be open to a reasonable extension if all goes well.


When winger Ryan Jones gets back from IR in about a week, the EDM lineup would look like this...

Left - Center - Right
Hall - Nugent-Hopkins - Eberle
Yakupov - Gagner - Jones (IR)
Hartikainen - Eller - Paajarvi
Belanger - Horcoff - Petrell
Smyth, Hordichuk, Eager (IR)


Until MaxPac is back from his appendectomy in about a month, MTL would look like this:

Left - Center - Right
Gionta - Plekanec - Hemsky
Bourque - Desharnais - Cole
Prust - Galchenyuk - Gallagher
Moen - White - Armstrong
Pacioretty (IR), Nokelainen (IR), Blunden


These may even be playoff caliber forward corps depending on how each teams young forwards hold up down the stretch.

Thoughts on the premise of this trade?

Montreal would be stupid to trade Eller as he's 23... He has the tools. Lets see how he turns out. Maybe if they're really in it at the deadline, they include Eller in some sort of upgrade deal.. Wont be for Hemsky though. The fans would eat him alive.

There's no real reason for Montreal to do this, although the value is there. Montreal is rebuilding and would probably rather keep their young guys rather than acquiring a prime aged player.

No use for Hemsky. Hemsky and Gagner are not wanted in Montreal.

Hemsky might be back to his point producing ways, but he is not the kind of winger Montreal is interested in. Eller is far more valuable to us for what he brings and his potential, along with his youth and favorable contract. Hemsky is a definite "NO" straight up. The fact we have to add a decent pick is just insulting...

Value seems fair, but from a cap and asset management standpoint it makes little sense for a team in Montreal's position to trade a cheap player that has yet to hit his ceiling for a highly paid vet.

Respectful pass.

I don't think it's that bad of a proposal if we exclude the decent pick.

Don't think I would do it because of the cap hit and the fact that I'm tired of soft players.

No thanks on Hemsky. Costs too much for a winger type that we don't need. I'd give a fifth rounder for Theo Peckham though...

Either Klefbom or Paarjvi would be who I would want coming back. I'd rather wait and see how prospects like Collberg and Kristo do over the next year or two.

As an Oilers fan, I'd do it.

Habs fans, can't see it.

I'm an Oilers fan and would definitely rather give up Paajarvi for Eller than Hemsky for Eller.

For the millionth time, Hemsky isn't soft. Period.

Anyways, we need to stop making any Hemsky trade proposals. Fans of other team that didn't watch the Oilers a few years ago don't know what he accomplished despite a lacklustre roster.

1: Hemsky is not soft. He plays harder than most players out there.
2: Galyenchuk won't be on the 3rd line for long.
3: I'm not convinced that Edmonton's top 6 would produce enough with Hemsky out of the line-up.
4: Hemsky-Gagner-Yakpov has been our best line so far. But be kinda nuts to pull the trigger on this deal for that reason.
5: With Eller in the fold that forces one of MPS or Hartikainen on the top line and pushes another guy down into being the extra forward. None of Hordichuk, Eager, Petrel or Belanger can be sent down, so that forces us to send Magnus or Hartikainen down. We lose too much speed and grit on a move like this and our bottom 9 wingers will be pretty boring. Especially when Jones comes back. Then both Magnus and Hartikainen will be sent down.

This would be a better trade to be made in the off-season IMO. Maybe Edmonton tosses in a sweetener like a 2nd rounder or Lander, but the value isn't that far off. By then Horcoff will be bought out and it'll make a lot more sense.

Magnus-Eller-Harti would be a good young checking line IMO.

By soft i mean weak and lacks grit and gets knocked around alot. Come to think of it that is the definition of soft. Not the type of player that the Habs are looking for.

That is exactly what he is. Weak, gets knocked around and lacks grit. I forgot to add fragile and oft-injured. Throw in overpaid while you are at it. How you can dispute this is beyond comprehension.

I think you need to watch more hockey. Yeah, you're right he's no Georges Laraque I admit it but he's definitely not soft.

Seriously man. Center ice is like fifty bucks.

Why does Edmonton do this? Hemsky is much better than Eller.

Soft and injury prone are two different things and I think that most people on these boards have forgotten that.

Hemsky goes into the dirty areas. That's the opposite of soft.

Hemsky takes the puck into the dangerous areas to get a shot off. That's not soft. An offensive players which we refer to as soft is what we call a perimeter player. Hemsky has never been accused of being a perimeter player.
