Realistically neither the Oils or the Panthers would do those trades. They just don't get anything of value in any of those trades.
Let's really break it down, the only thing of decent value in the Oil proposal is Bishop and I can't really think of any precedent that has been set for goalie prospects having high, or even moderate value. I don't think they are going to send Hemsky for a package that is centered around Bishop - and I don't blame them. Boro is an okay player, but he's like the Jesse Blacker of the Senators: no one is willing to actually give anything for a player like that. I don't think there's much difference in value between Smith and Gagner, so it really comes down to Boro+Bishop for Hemsky: not something I'd do as an Oilers fan. From a Sens POV, it would also suck to lose one of the only gritty guys we have left.
The Florida one is bordering on terrible to be harshly honest.
