Ill go so far as to say it will hurt the franchise if he's still there and if he resigns, Penner yes, he could stay, but not a chance in hell Tambo keeps Hemsky. it retards the kids development, and this needs to be Hall and Eberle's team and no longer Hemskys,

its the only way theyll grow
You mean the same Hemsky who has openly said that he is excited about the direction of the Oilers? The same Hemsky who has built a life in Edmonton and whose long term gf is from here and loves it here? A "rental" has nothing to do with his future with his current team regardless, there is a HUGE difference between an actual rental (who might be on a teams roster for 4 months, if they get to the finals) and a player with another year left on his contract and may sign an extension. 4 months VS a possible 16 months. Big difference. According to your definition, 1/3 of the players in the NHL are rentals. That's bs and you know it. Anyone who considers a player with a full year on his contract a rental needs to re-examine things.
