Hemsky who has struggled offensively this year has just 3g, 8a on the season. Hemsky's career high is 23g during the 2008-09 season.
Hemsky is in the final year of his contract that pays him $4.1 million this season.
...the Rangers are already dealing with one $4 million winger who's struggling to score, why would they want another one? Unless of course they trade Dubinsky for Hemsky. Although, I think I've heard Dubinsky for Hemsky since the Ranger wingers rookie season.
@thenyrblog no thanks, why donee need another wolski? We also have zuc that can be dealt if needed
Wolski, Zherdev, Frolov, Lisin, Sjostrom, Higgins, Gomez, Drury.
All highly regarded forwards that never made it her in recent years.
If it came down to Hemsky over Dubinsky I think I'd rather keep Dubinsky since he does throw his body in front of pucks and hits people.
@thenyrblog possible zuccarello, pluss some others in a trade? But dont think zuc will fit in oilers
@Beckfan5 agreed. hemsky isnt strong enough in the corners, is injury prone, doesnt take the shot even when its on a silver platter, has never lived up to his reputation and to boot is always the first guy off of the ice at practice? sounds like a perfect recipe for the tortorella dog house.
