Hate to give up gorges, but you gotta give to get & give to get-rid-of...

Hemsky adds some much needed offensive punch and plante should b able to compete for bottom pairing spot by next year, if not sooner, while adding size/toughness to the depth chart.

With markov/subban, gill/hamrlik?/spacek, emelin/weber/Diaz, we have decent d depth, and Gomez off the books makes it easier to either lock up Wiz, and/or overpay for a guy like Hannan or jovo to make up for losing Gorges.

Oilers desperately need a guy like gorges on the back end, and adding Gonez affords them more patience on bringing up rnh... Not too mention adding experience to a very green top 9 group.
I doubt Habs would get anything close to fair value for Gorges without him playing at least a hand ful of games. No team would gamble like that
