I don't care if Hemsky gets traded he can stay here and we can resign him. Heck in Hemsky we know what we have Schenn good come up and suck he's an unknown (he will be really good Eberle good)
Problem with Hemsky, is his health. That hurts his value a little bit.
I understand the Oilers asking for the moon, that's within their right in terms of negotiation. Kings just aren't going to give away the store for a player like Hemsky. All it is right now, is trade deadline hype, and Dean doesn't buy into the hype and hoopla.
My prediction is that Dean will probably stand pat, and doubt the Oilers have any suitors meeting their asking price, making them hang on to Hemsky and Penner for another season.
