if Edmonton holds half his salary that relieves alot of the acquiring teams concerns because then if hemsky gets hurt, both teams share the loss
that should make teams more willing to trade for hemsky
Ahh, I appreciate the clarification. I assumed you were being sarcastic, my bad.
Actually, I think injuries are a secondary concern with Hemsky. His shoulder seems to be holding up very well. The bigger concern is whether another team can get him to engage. He's a VERY good player when playing with passion, but in the last few years he seems to have picked up the habit of coasting through games.
