It's not just Hemsky though IMO. We have very few assets that teams would want that we'd be willing to give up. At some point someone is going to be dealt and some Oiler fans won't like it. Just like that 4th rounder that many didn't want to see dealt.
Wasn't Pat Quinn the guy who put JFJ on the top line because of "balance"? Trading Hemsky for a lesser player just because he has size would be a similar type of move, no?

There are very few (if any) good reasons to trade away a player for another who isn't nearly as good.
