from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
Easy to figure out what names are available in Edmonton, most of them are pending unrestricted free agents, led by winger Ales Hemsky, who I hear is getting decent traction on the market.
It’s a guarantee he gets dealt before Wednesday. He’s a nice Plan B for those teams that strike out on Thomas Vanek or Matt Moulson. Hemsky can still play, I actually thought he looked good in Sochi for the Czech Republic.
Veteran winger Ryan Smyth is also a pending unrestricted free agent and could move. I think he’d be a terrific addition for one of the top contenders. He’d accept a fourth-line role on a Cup contender and his character goes without saying.
Nick Schultz is also an unrestricted free agent and will likely be moved as a depth defenseman addition to a contender.
