Penner returned 1st + 3rd + Teubert. That's the starting point.

Hemsky is a much better player and more valuable to us than Penner, is signed for next year as well, and is playing very well so far this year.

No idea what teams would offer, but you should be able to figure out what the Oilers would want back in return.

And since they're closer to winning now and when Penner was dealt, I could see them looking for a centre of d-man with equivalent value to a picks/prospects type deal.

Only problem is good teams would want Hemsky, and they aren't the teams that would want to give up a roster player. If they are dealing him, and it's for a roster player, it could be a summer deal at the draft or later.

At this point though, he is playing well so would hurt to deal him, but his value should be much higher than when he was hurt.
