Week 12 – Merry Christmas, Ales Hemsky! Oh, and You’re Cut!
Having exhausted every possible trade scenario, option, rumor, and partner, Derko had no choice but to cut Hemsky on Sunday Night. His named was added into every single trade offer Derko has made since late in 2007 when he acquired Hemsky from Haukster. It seems like Hemsky has been on Derko’s team forever, but he was drafted in the 8th round (2001) by T-Man (who also grabbed some guy name Datsyuk in the 11th round,) was traded to Cordy in 2006 and then to Haukster in early 2007. In cutting Hemsky, Derko made room for his newest pick-up and the 357th goalie to play for Derko in the past 5 years, Martin Jones LA.
