TFP adds that the Rangers are supposedly dangling defenseman Michael Del Zotto as part of a deal for Hemsky.
Hemsky, 27, has 13 goals and 27 assists in 42 games this season. He has one-year left on his contract beyond this season at $4.1 million per.
...TFP is a legit rumor site on par with Spector's Hockey so I felt compelled to post this. However, I would be 100% against this move. Sure, MDZ is struggling right now but to me is potential is unlimited. No way I'm giving up on a 20-year-old who could be the team's pp QB for the next 10 years for a "scoring" winger who only has 13 goals this season.
...with Gaborik going down it's going to be real tempting for Sather to make a panic move right now, but he needs to take a deep breath realize this team isn't making noise with or without Hemsky and back away from the phone.
...this team is not ready to win yet. And giving up on someone who could be a huge piece of the Rangers future for a "quick fix" would be a colossel mistake.
