It makes no sense for the Oilers to trade Hemsky.

Wait and see how he plays up until the deadline. If he is healthy and playing well, and the team is out of the playoff race, then explore a trade.

If we are in a playoff race, then we need to keep him.
For ***** and giggles, if Hemsky's healthy at the deadline but is somewhat expendable (lets say it is because the youngsters are more than carrying the offensive load) - what is his pricetag?

You don't have to use specific players from the Devils roster (lest the sideshow that was the other 8 pages of this thread starts up again) - just give me the type of player(s) the Oilers would be looking for, or comparables even.
