Exactly. And you know who isnt young by NHL standards? Hemsky. Tambo needs to push him on to a Cup contender in exchange for 1-2 NHL assets.

I don't recall who (was it you Bryan?), but someone throughout the idea of a deal with the Sens centred around Zack Smith. Perfect fit for the Oilers in a lot of ways. Murray will never give him up, but that is the type of player we should be targeting.
