Here's my crack at it.
To VAN: Hemsky, EDM and TOR 3rd rders 2012
To EDM: Kulemin
To TOR: Luongo
The Oil give up a pick because they are gaining greater cap flexibility
(2.2mil difference between Hemmer and Kuli). Toronto gives up a pick because they are getting the best player in the deal. Vancouver gets a guy that - if healthy (big if, I know) - has proven to be near a ppg player and would be a nice compliment to Kesler and Booth.
I am loathe to give up a healthy and motivated Hemsky, but I feel Kulemin would be a better fit with Yakupov, even if he never returns to his 30 goal season (would be more than happy with a 20-20 guy who creates space and takes care of his own end).
That logic is laughable.
I think HF has poisoned your brain. Hemsky is a dangerous player and doesn't shy away from contact
no matter what the experts on here say. He has also gotten much better in the past 2 years without the puck.
Hemsky > Kulemin
Wanting to trade Hemsky + 3rd for Kulemin, where Hemmer ends up on a rival team in our division is a horribad idea.
