Gary Valk: Acquire Hejduk?

Recommended Posts

Was watching Valk after the game, and he said he would love to see Hejduk here, and he beloved he will bring back 2 scoring lines again.

Does anybody agree with Valk? What would we give up?

We could have a top 6 of:

Sedin-Sedin-Hejduk

Higgins-Kesler-Burrows

Or switch Burr and Hejduk

Points have been decreasing steadily. Only 11 points this season, I don't see him as much of an upgrade over most guys in our top 6. But on the other side he does provide depth and would cost nothing to acquire. Tough call but don't think it's worth it

Sadly I'm not keeping my hopes up for the Canucks to acquire some offensive pieces. Even though it's clear we need offensive help even with Kesler in the line up to compete with the other top teams. Not that Hedjuk would fit our needs anyway.

I'd do it, if Ray Shero decides not to.

Even though he's old he's still got a good shot, I'd love to have him on the left side on his forehand, getting shots off on the PP. He also knows how to get open while guys set him up from the other side. I mean Kes would be the 1st unit but unless Hansen's shot becomes top notch (or if Kassian learns to one time, though he was mainly brought in to be the big guy in front) I think Hejduk could be a solid piece to add to the offense.

I wouldn't trade more than a 3rd or a prospect for him though.

If we snag him for like a 4th or 5th rounder, sure. He has pretty much no value and Hejduk can provide timely goals for us... Then again, if he sucks against us, I wonder if he'll be good if he plays for us.

The memory of Hejduk I'd jump at - the current player... a tough sell.

His underlying numbers have gotten pretty bad. He's only a 2 million cap hit and a UFA, so the rental price imo would not be significant, but how much can he add at this point?

Don't see where he'd fit in the lineup to be honest.

Pass.
