That'd be great as far as I'm concerned. It makes it a lot easier to move him when 2/3 of his contract has been paid and 2/3 of his cap hit is gone.

Sadly I can invision the opposite, deadline rolls around, Hemsky is on the DL and has put up 15 points in 30 games.
I'd move him before the deadline if an injury hits a playoff team hard and they need a 2RW and have the cap space available. My worry about waiting until the deadline was summed up quite nicely in your last sentence
