Edmonton is a team on the upswing, I'd think they'd want to hang onto him. He's also under contract for one more season at 4.1 million. Good deal.

There's also the issue of not giving away too much in order to gain a player like that. I've liked Hemsky for many years now, so maybe I'm overrating him.

Speaking of Edmonton, rumor is that they're talking to Atlanta about Bogosian. Now there's a guy I'd want on our team, but that seems especially unlikely to happen.

At any rate, I'd rather keep the offensive core together. It's the defense that presents the best opportunity to upgrade.
