Kunitz and Dupuis do an admirable job keeping up with Sid and they can make decent plays off the rush, but neither of them can create anything for themselves. A guy like Hemsky can actually enter the zone, protect the puck and make a pass under pressure. Sid hasn't had somebody capable of that since Hossa.

/end pipe dream.

Again, Oil fans, I'm not saying that you're looking to move Hemsky or that the Pens are good trade partners. I'm just asking what you suspect the Oil's price for him would be (and yes, I understand that the price would be inflated if the organization isn't particularly interested in movingh im).
Asking Hemsky's value usually ends up to being a Oilers flame fest and how injury prone he is. Its been done a number of times and it always get ugly.
