Almost want to say something like.. Hemsky+Hartikainen for Clowe+(and maybe) Justin Braun? What is Braun's value to SJ?

If it were to work out like that, San Jose gets a speedy top 6 winger, and a gritty bottom 6 winger who is still improving and getting better (would really like to keep Hartikainen in Edmonton though). And Edmonton gets some much needed size and grit in their top 2 lines, and a bit of a defensive prospect who seems to be the type of defenseman Edmonton could use.

How does something like that sound?
Braun's not a defensive prospect. He's a 4/5 two-way NHLer on a great contract for three more years. And he's highly, highly valued in SJ.
