Phx and Edm

With the trading of Paajarvi to St. Louis. Edmonton is in need of some players suited to a shut down line.

To phx: Hemsky (1 million retained)

To edm: Moss

Edmonton gets a third line player that fits the checking style we will need for our third line better than Hemsky.

Phoenix gets a legitimate top six winger for a reasonable 4 million a year.

Flame away

Edmonton would need to retain 2.5mil.

Your reason for this? Hemsky is a better player than Moss. If we were trading Hemsky at an AAV of 2.5 the price would go up.

Is Hemsky really that much better offensively than Moss? The numbers don't indicate it the last few years. I don't see the point of this trade for PHX.

We couldn't afford him otherwise.

Fair enough. Part of the reason was for edmonton to shed some salary to sign gagner, add another top four defender and round out the bottom six.

When healthy, Hemsky is a dynamic offensive player (Think Havlat). He drives the play, creates offence.

Moss isn't a .75 ppg player (And Hemsky is closer to .85-.9 ppg player when healthy.).

Not that I have watched him tons, by I can't remember Moss driving anyone's offense, and for several seasons, Hemsky did it almost alone in Edmonton.

Ya. The oel threads never seem to end well. I started one last summer with eberle and Marincin. Since then oel has only gotten better and oiler fans are offering less

Edmonton is actually surprisingly close this season. Assuming Gagner gets signed around 5 mil, there's only about 2.5 mil left after that. Of course, losing even half of Hemsky's salary opens it up a little again.

I remember this Hemsky years ago but my default reaction to proposals like this is always, "really? You have a PPG guy but you're willing to trade him for a checking winger? Sounds like you have a lot of faith in his health ..."

Moss isn't driving anyone's offense, but if I don't have faith in his health, then I think this creates a bigger hole on the PHX checking line / PK than it fills on the scoring lines / power play.

I take this deal as an Oiler fan, Phoenix could use some talent and high end skill in Hemsky and our bottom 6 just doesn't suit him at this time. Moss could contribute a more gritty style in our bottom 6 and reunite with Gordon. Hemsky just doesn't fit with Eberle and Yakupov surpassing him on the depth charts.

5.99/60 on the power play this season, in a down year. Could definitely help on the powerplay

Moss playing against Calgary would suck. I always liked him.

I had this exact thought earlier today without the 1 mil

My other thought for a trade was: Gormley Samuelson and Moss for Eberle. But thought there would be a lot of backlash from both sides

Eberle is good, really damn good, but Gormley is one of the best D prospects in the league and Samuelsson ain't a throwaway either. I think Phoenix would rather give up a draft pick.

We have a strict budget for next season. We can't afford him unless you eat half of his salary.

The salary has nothing to do with it. Cap hit is completely and totally meaningless in Phoenix the only number that matters is actual, real dollars. We can't afford what Hemsky is owed, unless Edmonton picks up half the tab.

Nothing has changed. We are still a budget team. Is that supposed to be forgotten about because you traded Horcoff to a non budget team for a 7th?

The fact is Phoenix has a budget and we can't afford to give ten percent of it to Ales Hemsky. Just can't.

If Edmonton wants to eat 50% then there might be something to talk about. If not, it's a pointless discussion.

You managed to make a trade where if both managers executed it, they should both be fired. Kudos.

what about if we swapped Czechs? Hemsky for Hanzal?

What would coyotes realistically want for Hanzal?

Hanzal is not available. Period. He's too important of a piece for us in order to compete in the Pacific, where size matters.

As for Hemsky, we're definitely interested, but a) EDM has to eat 50% of his salary, no less, and b) it still has to be a trade where they take salary back.
