Darcy could very easily(if healthy) trade Hemsky at the deadline for another 2nd rounder or b level prospect. This deal is very much a possibility however it will not be straight up, other pieces will be added.
I could understand Edmonton's interest. I would think Hemsky would be included only for cap reasons.

No rebuilding team, trades away a key player for one yr, of an oft injured, high priced vet.
