I swear Tambellini must be smoking crack! What a waste of money! They should have traded him and used the the 5 million to get a real player, what a joke.

Now they got their second line

Smyth (6M) - Horcoff (6.5M) - Hemsky (5M)
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

So glad he is off the table and all these rumors that he's going to be a Wing are over!

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

Seems to me contracts are getting more and more ridiculous lately. If Ericson is worth $3.75M and Hemsky $5M, whats Hudler going to go for?
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

So, we're dogpiling on the goalie sammy Hudler the defense the refs league bias against us coaching now? Ok.

5 million a year for an injury prone career underachiever. Stay in Edmonton.

This one ranks right up there with the Diepietro contract and Jeff Finger's abortion of a contract a few years ago with the Leafs.

"Hard Work Beats Talent When Talent Refuses to Work Hard"

 

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

Not even close, those two you just mentioned are absolutely horrendeous. Yes this is definitely an overpayment for Hemsky but it is only 2 years and if Hemsky can somehow stay healthy and get between 50-60 points then he will only be overpaid by about 1.5 MM or so
