As for the 2 D-men...I dont know much with the oiler D-man....but Buffalo has a significant surplus of D-man who are at AHL level or below who are NHL ready.
I could see this trade if Buffalo was basically trading someone who is due to enter the NHL now for someone who will but 2-3 yrs from now.
As it stands now in terms of players I see this as Buffalo>>Edmonton so something more needs to be added like another player or a #1 pick.
The money owed Hemsky is a big factor in this. If I am not mistaken I think this is Stafford last year on his contract.
Another option would be to throw in another player....like Luke Adam in return for a #1.
Didn't Staffords play drop from the year before, and wasn't there a rumor that he was on the trading block. His name came up in a number of trade rumors towards the trading dead line. Stafford still has 3yrs with a 4mil cap hit.
