Finally, some reality.

I applaud you sir.

It's like the Stars fans that thought Ryder would get more at the deadline when the team had to give up a pick with him to get Erik Cole of all people (having a very poor season).

This isn't the NHL before the lockout. The cap is going down next year, teams are going to start valuing their prospects and picks a little more because those 3yr ELC are going to help them stay competitive and under the cap, etc.

Hemsky might get a 2nd and an ok prospect from a team, if someone is desperate enough, maybe a late 1st and a roster dump (an impending UFA).
