Vancouver would need a top 6 physical player.
Hemsky was money in the playoffs in 06 for the record.

That said, I don't really like the deal. I like Hodgson a lot, I don't really want Ballard (and Vancouver needs him), and I'm not sure about Raymond either. If I was the Oilers, I would consider this deal, but counter with a first rounder instead of Ballard.
