Surely the injury risk issue is easily settled. Set the deal up as though there were no injury issues, and then have Edmonton include a conditional 1st if Hemsky misses more than, say, 20-30 games in the season. If his injuries are truly behind him, as Edmonton fans insist, there should be nothing to fear.

...and yet I've made that proposal before and gotten incredibly, overwhelmingly hostile reactions from Oil fans. Which suggests that maybe, just maybe, said Oil fans don't really believe he's fully healed either.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
