The problem is prying one away from another team. For the Canucks it took moving a Hodgson...and then putting up with the hysteria every time Hodgson scores a goal.
I like Hemsky but I am not sure he is enough to score a young power forward from another team. Unless you give up someone with a great pedigree (and all your young #1s have that) then I don't see Edmonton being able to pull off a deal.
To get a true young, star power forward, you may have to dangle Hall, RNH, Eberle or Yak...much like the canucks had to offer up Hodgson.
Is that something Tamblowe would contemplate?
To get Kassian the Oilers would have to serve up Yakupov or equivalent
