Out of those three, Volchenkov has the most qualities that the Oilers are looking for.

At the same time, in the wake of Kovie's retirement, NJ will be looking for offensive help. We are looking to deal Hemsky.

Is it too much to assume thata 1-1 deal cannot be made here?

To NJ:
Hemsky 5 M cap hit

To EDM:
Volchenkov 4.25 M cap hit

Both teams get what they need, and NJ now has the room to absorb an extra .75 M in cap, with lots of room to still look into the FAs to complement Hemsky's presence.

If you don't think this is a fair trade, what would you change/add?
Volchenkov is too slow to play In our system. I'd rather just sign Douglas Murray and that's not saying much.
