Jim Matheson at the Edmonton Journal says that the Rangers are one of a handful of teams that are in the mix for the Oilers’ Ales Hemsky.
Hemsky who has struggled offensively this year has just 3g, 8a on the season. Hemsky’s career high is 23g during the 2008-09 season.
Hemsky is in the final year of his contract that pays him $4.1 million this season.
…the Rangers are already dealing with one $4 million winger who’s struggling to score, why would they want another one? Unless of course they trade Dubinsky for Hemsky. Although, I think I’ve heard Dubinsky for Hemsky since the Ranger wingers rookie season.
