Providing Edmonton could sign him to a long term deal I think it would be a stroke of genius. I’m not saying trade Hemsky or Gagner, or really even Horcoff or Lubo (which wouldn’t be a part of the equation anyway) but a deal involving Cogliano, Gilbert and something for Bouwmeester and something else might work.
The Oilers have been getting some good results lately and making some slight progress in the WC. They’ve played the same number of games as Minnesota (26) and are 3 behind in terms of points (29-26) and that ladies and gentlemen is one tough club those Jack Lemaire’s.
Players to watch include Ales Hemsky, Lubomir Visnovsky and Rob Schremp.
And I’m not even kidding.
According to tsn, Schremp is on a line with Cogs and Poo (and they’re all getting results) while Gagner is on the 4line with Reddox and Brule. Man a lot of young men are at forward these days.
