If the Pens could acquire BOTH Hemsky and Boyes, I would S*** myself as Boyes and Hemsky are two of my favorite players.
With the original proposal, I would pull the trigger. I think it makes sense from a Pens standpoint. But the only thing that I am skeptical over Hemsky is his injury history. If he can stay healthy, I would have no problem with the deal.
Ha. It won't be for long. Despres is honestly one of the fastest big men I have ever seen. He has serious wheels for someone his size, and he will thrive in a quick attacking style of up and down hockey.
