Anyways this trade makes no sense for either side. Hemsky is the driving force on the oilers 2nd line and Dubnyk has been pretty good this year. Anderson is the senators right now. Ottawa wants to give the young players an oppurtunity to preform in a situation with some hope. Plus it isnt certain if Lehner is ready yet.
Karlsson has a possible career changing injury... He may not be the same for you guys as he was the past 1 and a quarter seasons. Hemsky is still doing what he does, going into the dirty areas to get pucks and distribute them and actually leading our team in goal scoring. We don't need another goaltender atm and trading Hemsky for a goal tender playing above his head right now is not a good gamble. imo.
