Judging by the above, Detroit has bigger needs than a RW at this point.

From the Oilers standpoint, I think they signed him to 2 years because they are committed to sticking with him and hoping he is healthy and gets his game back.

IMO, this is the last run for Hemsky in Edmonton, but they will let him try to succeed before they deal him. If he can stay healthy, click with the young kids, and get his game together then he may stick long-term.

If not, he will probably be dealt at this or next trade deadline IMO.
