Hes been on the third line getting defensive minutes in the past two seasons on a lousy Edmonton team. He passes the eye test for me, always love watching him play. Also 18 goals is more than Brunner Zubrus Ryder Zajac Lokti can provide. He would have been an upgrade. I'd take those 9 goals ad 17 assists over Ryder's nonchalant play.

And what is wrong with another pure play maker? Besides Patty and Jagr we have a bunch of gritty centers as wingers.

 

Loktionov, Clowe, Zubrus - these are all pass first players.  Josefson too.

 

Ryder is only considered nonchalant because he isn't scoring.  He's getting his shots.

If Hemsky was a goal-scorer, why can't he crack the top six on a lousy Edmonton team?  He's flashy but overrated.

I hate his game even when he i scoring. He drags his line down. I have been extremely disappointed with him all season. One hot streak doesn't do it for me. Majority of his shots are outside the circles on the rush anyways, he doesn't generate anything.

A reminder if someone retweets anything on your timeline of any established insider....it is fake. Why? Because you already follow McKenzie and Dreger, etc.

He scores goals.  He's not the most creative player and he's not going to do a lot for you otherwise but he scores goals.  The Devils don't have goal scorers.

Don't like it at all. He hasn't been a goal scorer for a 16 game stretch and another time at a 12 13 14 game stretch?

And he's out of he top 6 due to the constant catering to the oilers young forwards. Look at his corsi stats on that putrid oiler team and tell me he's bad.

Buffalo already has an amazing prospect pool and now they get Hudson Fasching. I'm jealous.

You know what, I've got a feeling the Devils are in on Vanek.

 

I have NO sources, I haven't heard this anywhere.  I just have a feeling Lou's a sleeper on this guy.

That's unfortunate, but it's bad luck.  He's getting his shots.  I can't repeat that enough.  If you're going to cite Corsi, I will cite that Ryder's shot per game rate was lower than 2 earlier in the year and has crept up to well beyond 2 per game in 2014, they are just not going in.

 

Buffalo already has an amazing prospect pool and now they get Hudson Fasching. I'm jealous. 

 

Try watching them for a few games, think that jealousy will fade somewhat.

And now the Habs acquired Dubnyk.  That's another closed door for Marty.

Better make good use with those picks. Buffalo doesn't want to become the next oilers or islanders. Stockpiling picks doesn't always lead to future success.
