Some posters think that due to Hemsky's history, they think their team can get him for cheap and whine and cry when the Oilers fans disagree with them. HFboards somethings never change.
we arent the ones whining and crying. its Oiler fans that whine and cry when we tell them that we dont agree with them on what fair value is

otherwise why not do as Viqsi and countless others have suggested and include a 1st rd pick as a conditional hedge in case of injury

the very fact that you wont consider it, is proof positive that oiler fans are negotiating in bad faith and have just as many valid concerns about Hemsky's ability to stay healthy

it also points squarely on who is whining and crying because one side is willing to accept a conditional aspect to any trade, the whiners and the criers arent
