I don't think they will..There are quite a few B options out there in Kovalev, Arnott, Weiss, Zherdev, etc, and the top teams, such as Philly and Van won't be making much for moves. IMO, teams like Pitts, La, Mont, etc, will make cheap moves because they don't believe there will be enough difference in picking up Hemsky/Penner to make them better than those teams and put them closer to the cup. They won't want to spend the asking price for a slight difference.....I think they'll both still be Oilers after the deadline..
