Canucks add a key piece to their forward crop in their current Cup chase. Oilers add a long term goaltending stud to backbone their hoard of draft lottery youngstars.
No way. Value is actually reasonable, but Hemsky showed why he's so valuable to a very young and green Oilers offense last night (and many nights so far this year).
I'd rather have Fistric at 1.5 than Ballard at 4.2, though I recognize that Ballard is more skilled.
And honestly, with the way Dubnyk's played, he's been a total bright spot for this team, so I don't think Schneider is much of an upgrade.
Higgins would be a great piece to add, but not at the expense of Hemsky.
