Hemsky's a 5M player in Edmonton. He's been a good soldier for the Oilers the last 10 years. He's never complained and he would have been justified in doing so. He's been an island on the Oilers for years.

If he plays 70 games next season, he'll likely score 20 goals/65 points. On a short term deal with no NMC isn't bad. Hemsky's been a very loyal guy to the Oilers. He stuck around and kept his mouth shut when everyone else was jumping ship.

It's kind of depressing for Oilers fans but the truth is that players that love Edmonton are few and far between these days. Hemsky is one of them. So I'm fine with 5M on a 2 year deal.
