There was going to be complaining either way. If one was moved, both or none.

My standpoint from the start has been we should look at moving one or both based on the market and the fact that going forward we probably need to make room. I also stated I prefer to keep Penner over Hemsky, based on size, contract going forward and injury history.

I also stated that we shouldn't be shocked if we suck even more when one is dealt, because odds are we don't get much more than prospect and picks for either guy.

Hemsky getting injuried this quick just makes me shake my head. I figured he'd go down at some point this year, but not one game after the trade deadline. Somewhere DL is smiling that he didn't give up Schenn+ for Hemsky.
