Of course Tambellini can gamble since both Hemsky and Penner have another year on their deals, but I'd also like to see something done and Tambellini could be taking the best approach and waiting for desperation to set in forcing a GM to overpay by normal standards.
You can say it's a seller's market, but does Hemsky really fit into the Oilers' long range plans? If he does fine, hang onto him. If he doesn't the time is rapidly approaching when his value is going to drop.
