I agree that Hemsky is the better player, especially if you factor in contracts. However Potter is not worth anything close to a Savard or Moore. Personally i think this is a deal in favour of Edmonton. I could see Columbus packaging one of Savard or Moore in a deal, they have the depth.

I think this is a decent proposal to work off of, Edmonton just needs to add a little. However myself i am very adverse to trading Hemsky, given a bounceback season (not unreasonable considering his career and circumstances behind last season) he'd easily fetch something like Umberger+Moore/Savard in a trade. The Oilers are better off waiting it out with him.
