Would you resign Hemsky?

Curious to what fans think about resigning Hemsky. He is having a good year and is a vetern fwd that has played well this year and the coach likes how he is skating back. He seems to be healthy now which was his biggest problem.

Would you resign Hemsk?
Is so for how much and how long?

If he'll sign for under 3 million, and we can get Ott, yes.

Ott - Gordon - Hemsky would be a good 3rd line

Depends on the price. 3.5 and less I am fine with. I don't think he is part of the problems of the team and is good enough to go to literally any line on the RW, which is a decent dynamic.


I would still deal him at the deadline if we got a decent offer however.

No, because I think he'll be moved to a contender on Trade Deadline Day

If the question is "Do you want to keep Hemsky?" then yes.

If the question is "Do you trade Hemsky for other assets?" then only if it the sum of assets is worth more than what Hemsky can bring.

If the question is "Do you resign Hemsky if you can't trade him?" then yes, because hes still one of our best players and we have nobody else that can replace or be better than him.

Yes...

if its under 3.6/year
if the contract is 3 years or less

Oilers can't get value in a trade for him which beats the value of having him, and I think he actually likes the fanbase here and the city.

By the sounds of it Hemsky might only get a 2nd round pick, to me I would rather resign him now that he seems to be healthy. A player like Hemsky is very nice to have in your top 9. I am thinking he will want at least a 4 yrs deal but if we could get him for 3.5mil then I would do it. If we go with what we have now and making a few moves our top 9 would look like:
Hall; RNH; Eberle
Perron; Arco; Yak
???, Gordon, Hemsky
Smyth, ????, Gadzic

Arco is just a fill in until we can find that 2C with size to help our team. Filling those two positions can really help this team.

The big additions would be on defense and goalie, that would really make a big difference for our team.

To the people saying trade him at the deadline (which I would like to do), if he tests free agency, and would sign say 2 years, 7 million to come back, do you do it?

Absolutely, how can people vote no. He has been the best Oiler for the last 7 years! But obviously, it is all price dependent ....

No. We need the roster spot for Yak. Hemsky on the 3rd line is bad for both us and Hemmer. Bad fit.

Nothing against anything he's done for us this year. He's been great, wish for some more production but playing on the 3rd line with slower guys all year, it's the same as years before when he was on the top line and we had no one to play with him. Now we have a different make up for our top 6 and moving in a different direction. Hemmer is a bad fit on the third line and doesn't play enough defense for him to be on our third line.

Absolutely not, Hemsky is a big part of whats wrong with this team. He's a vet on this team so its no surprise that a lot of the younger guys are making the same stupid plays he does. Examples being overhandling the puck, refusing to dump and chase(although he's getting better at this), playing soft, skating nonchalantly to get off the ice on a line change, etc... I won't be surprised if the team plays better once he's dealt.

Hemsky has never been a soft player, he goes into the corners and takes a hit to make a play, I just can not agree with anyone who states that Hemsky is soft.

I would re-sign him for a decent price. But If I'm Hemsky I get out and revive my career before its too late.

MacT might ask him if he wants to stay before he trades him, but I think he knows what the answer is. I just hope we can get an actual NHL player in return.

Whens the last time you've seen him in on a forecheck? And I agree soft may be the wrong word. When you look at most of the problems with this team and look at Hemsky's game the problems almost all match up.

I'm not sure what people expect out of Hemsky. He's the same type of player he's always been, but we have the wrong mix of players.

Depends on a lot of things but for now I said no. We need to get bigger and need to get away from the 3 scoring lines. If you find a good deal for Eberle/Yak and the bottom 6 has gotten a lot grittier than you can afford to keep him in the top 6.

No. No. No.

The biggest issue this team has is that we keep giving roster spots to redundant players.

If you're going to have Hall/RNH/Eberle/Yakupov here then Hemsky and Gagner's spots need to be filled by dramatically different types of players -- grit players.

He needs to get the hell away from this franchise too, it's drained his best years. Go play for a contender while you still have some good years left for your own sake seriously.

Best possible thing for him is to be traded to a contender at the deadline and go play some meaningful hockey.

We should spend the money that we were going to use on Hemsky on a guy like Ott in the summer (will require an overpayment).
