I wouldnt add a thing to Hemsky for Staal. In fact i'd rather have Hemsky and have no idea why the Oilers are even looking to move him.

If i were the Oilers id be looking to sign long term deals to Penner and Hemsky for about they are currently making, wait for the kids to get a couple of years older, marinate, add some spices and do a lot of winning.
You may pick up a #1 center in the draft this year, you may get another good pick next year.

These are both somewhat unique guys, Hemsky has some of the best passing hands in the league and you cant teach Penner's size.
I wouldn't make this deal for Hemsky and i certainly wouldnt trade him for Brayden Schenn.
