"The Rangers are still mulling the Rick Nash scenario but would like to add more pop to an offense that currently boasts the 27th ranked power play in the league. Not sure Hemsky is a John Tortorella guy, but he might thrive in the high-speed game favored by the acid-tongued coach. The up-side for the Rangers is that they wouldn't have to upset their everyday roster to acquire Hemsky, something that stands as a major roadblock to discussions about acquiring Nash."
Hemsky has 4g, 21a and is a -15 this season. Hemsky is in the final year of his contract that pays him $4.1 million this season.
...i have heard Hemsky to the Rangers since I started this blog four years ago. So excuse me if I don't take this very seriously. And I really don't think his whopping one power play goal this season is going to help resuscitate the Rangers extra man unit.
...and don't the Rangers already have an overpaid enigmatic winger. Only way I do this if I'm Sather is Hemsky for Wolski straight-up.
...also the Rangers don't have a good history obtaining guys with the name Ales. See Kotalik.
LOL Hemsky has Sather written all over him... he'll never get ice time with Torts. This is one guy I do not want.
@thenyrblog Yes the NYR would certainly be interested in adding a player having a breakout year with a whole 4 goals...sounds legit...haha
@thenyrblog yeah cuz there's a guy that won't fuck up the "chemistry" you've all been whining about.
@thenyrblog I'd do wolski for hemsky straight up, or hemsky for a 2nd or 3rd I'd do on a heart beat
@thenyrblog so as we come to the finish line, what do u think Slats will/should offer to get nash?
What the Hell happened to th Selanne move???? The guy is 5th in PP points and has scored 20 goals this year. Seems like a great plug in that wouldn't disrupt the current roster or the future I know Anaheim is still fighting, but a prospect and Wolski might get it done.
@thenyrblog thanks for adding something different to the mix :)
@richeypow Dubi, Thomas, Erixon and a first. Not enough, but I wouldn't give up more than that.
@CSI_FLACK_NYR No problem.
@thenyrblog yep, so will either blink? Interesting
