Something like:

Hemsky

for

8th
Pahlsson
Commodore

??

They get a star player and clear some more cap space. Edmonton gets the top 10 pick, a third line centre, and a defenceman who can replace Vandemeer/Strudwick playing some minor minutes whilst providing a veteran presence and leadership for the young team.
If commadore waived his ntc I'd love this deal and I think most oil fans would as well. You'd think edmonton would draft the best d-man available. New jersey is surely going to grab larsson or murphy.

If edmonton is lucky both hamilton and murphy will be available. I for the life of me can't decide which of them I'd prefer. Hamilton is gonna be a giant beast with considerable offensive upside, but murphy could be our next paul coffee.
