I still think that it's likely that a defender is moved, possibly in a deal along with Hemsky. Although I think that Hemmer might very well be retained and moved later in the year. A team that loses a top six winger to injury and needs a replacement or a contending team going into the playoffs might find Hemsky to be an attractive option. I certainly wouldn't be at all surprised if Nick Schultz was the defender who is on his way out of town. We have a lot of defenseman now, and Nick wasn't great last season.
