Williams, Hickey, Drewiske/Martinez for Hemsky? Picks added to even it out either way.
This is basically what I was going to throw out there.
[selection of D prospect]
[pick based on which prospect]
Williams is probably going to get injured at some point, but he can produce some of what Hemsky brought as a fill-in. 1 year left on his contract at 3.5.
Drewiske is young and can jump in right away. He should be a solid bottom pairing guy, although wouldn't be an ideal top 4.
Whatever D prospect is wanted (probably Hickey?). Most are a year or two away, but some could be given NHL time next year if desired.
If not Hickey, you could probably pull a decent pick as well. Maybe even if it is Hickey, I don't know.
I don't know if that's what Oilers fans are looking for though.
