With regards to the bolded, that's not entirely true. Not in the absolute sense you make it seem, anyway. Pens fans simply don't want to pay the price that certain Oilers fans believe Hemsky will cost to acquire him.

I think almost to a poster, Pens fans aren't against acquiring Hemsky ... just so long as it doesn't cost a core player or one of Despres/Morrow. If the price is reasonable, he could be a nice addition to the Pens for this year's stretch drive.

The problem is, Oilers fans seem certain it'll cost a Kings' ransom to acquire him. And if that is true, that's the scenario in which Pens fans "hate the thought of getting him".
