Hmm, what would you think about a deal involving Mike York and Handzus? York is a guy that I'd hate to see leave the Oilers but Edmonton is stacked on the left side and having York, Hemsky and possibly Schremp in the future top 6 is awfully small. York would be a dynamite left winger on Philly and could help fill Handzus' PK minutes.

If Schremp develops into a reliable NHL centerman and Hemsky turns into a top line player (big 'ifs' obviously), a top 6 of this would look pretty good to me:

Smyth-Schremp-Hemsky (Hemsky feeding Schremp = )
Torres-Handzus-Dvorak

I really like the looks of the second line as it could play some really tough minutes and likely still be a positive even strength force. This deal would depend on Schremp developing into a solid top six scorer and Smyth starting to score more goals with better linemates. Any thoughts?
