The Oilers have a massive hole on the RW with Hemsky gone. The amount is irrelevant--they have tons of cap space. What matters is the term. Hemsky at 5M for 2 years is better than Hemsky at 4 million for 5 years. If he gets hurt or otherwise does not work out, they can ship him out with only 1 year left on his contract. They won't be able to do it so easily when he's on contract for 4 more years.
