Trading Hemsky is still the most logical choice going forward.
It really isn't.

Advantage to trading Hemsky - getting cap space.

Advantages to keeping Hemsky -
a) skilled depth on third line - we need someone capable offensively on the third line.
b) If one of the top six wingers does down due to injury - who's playing on the PP or the top six wingers? Ryan Jones? Jesse Jonessu?
c) challenge the top six wingers for their time. If Eberle, Yakupov, Perron goes into a slump then we have someone to take over and offer a different look.
