If you think all of those players are of Hemskys value I don't think you have anything worthwhile left to add.
Hemsky this year: 23g 43a. 66 pts
Krejci: 22g 51a 73 pts 3 years younger than Hemsky
Kessel: 36g 24a 60 pts 4 years younger than Hemsky
Wheeler: 21g 24a 45 pts 3 years younger than Hemsky
Lucic: 17g 25a 42 pts 5 years younger than Hemsky
Ok this might be a down year for Hemsky, but he has been pretty consistently a low 20s goal scorer and a high 40s low 50s assist guy.
Krejci is a similar player and younger and dealing him for Hemsky would be a lateral move so Boston has no reason to do this.
Kessel is clearly a better goal scorer than Hemsky and given that we have Savard (a better playmaker) and Krejci (an equal playmaker) there is no point in trading him for a playmaker in Hemsky.
Wheeler had a good rookie year,but yeah Hemsky is a better player right now and maybe in the future. I don't see the Oilers dealing Hemsky for Wheeler straight up but I don't think Boston would want to add too much AND Edmonton would still have to take back salary.
Lucic isn't as good a player as Hemsky but again, we have several good playmakers and trading a physical presence for another playmaker wouldn't make sense.
