Westgarth comes over for Nemisz


Recommended Posts

  Calgary dumped a former first round pick who has been a bust, Greg Nemisz on the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for a decent tough guy Kevin Westgarth.

  Westgarth is not really much of a player but he is not afraid to duke it out, he is a big guy at 6;4 and around 230 pounds, he has been in 133 NHL games with only 3 goals but over 200 PIMs. He knows why he is on a roster and what is expected of him.

  Nemisz was chosen late in the first round with a pick the Flames had acquired from the Canadiens as payment for Alex Tanguay, Nemisz can only be described as a bust, the next two picks were Tyler Ennis and John Carlson with Slava Voynov just a couple of picks further down. In 15 NHL games he has 1 assist, this year with the Abbotsford Heat he has a measly 9 points in 32 games, and has been assigned to Charlotte.

  Westgarth is what he is, you know you got a bruiser who makes the skill level of John Scott look like Bobby Orr but at least he has an established NHL role. Nemisz is a big guy too but has not even translated into a good AHL player after a good career with the Windsor Spitfires. In all likelihood this is one of those trades that does nothing for either team, I suppose that Nemisz is young enough to maybe turn it around but the Canes history of underachieving prospects bodes badly for him.
