He might want to resign here and if we can do it for cheap, I wouldn't mind this deal. He'd be a great guy to put somewhere in the line up, even if he can't be top 6. We can't really be mad at the return. It was 2 pickis that werent' really high at all, so I'm fine with that.
Well, I am now a Senators fan for the rest of this season at least. I think you guys will come around on Hemsky, he's really an electrifying player and should be motivated for the playoff drive. He seems to have lost a little bit of his touch, but some of his passes will leave you shaking your head.
Happy to pay the price for an impending UFA even tho you don't think team will make the playoffs
You're all about the future or something..
A 3rd and a 5th is not gonna destroy this franchise. Hemsky is a clear upgrade and could be a solid winger for Spezza. We're on the bubble to make the playoffs and so far Columbus, Detroit, Toronto, New Jersey haven't done anything yet. We have improved from Conacher to Hemsky.
Our chances, theoretically, should be better to make the playoffs.
Doing nothing and keeping status quo will just leave players no renewed hope to push hard for the playoffs. Just be a fan and wait and see. Criticize when we don't make the playoffs.
One thing I really like about Hemsky is that he adds more speed and skill to our lineup. He loves to shoot down the right wall and cut to the net. That fits in a lot with the way the Sens play and stretch the ice.
If he can't crack our top 6 that would awful.greening and Condra can xD
Oh no doubt he will be in the top 6, but with Malcean's line juggling you never know. We now have basically swapped Conacher for Hemksy and I can see Hemsky being a better fit. He can play on the 1st, 2nd or 3rd line and be a better fit probably.
