I find it interesting that people are planning on Hemsky being dealt at the deadline. For that to happen you would need 1) Hemsky to have had a bounce back year, 2) Hemsky to be injury free, and 3) the Oilers clearly out of playoff contention.

I don't expect the Oilers to be in the playoffs this year but I would also be surprised if they had packed it in by the deadline. If Hemsky is producing and the Oilers are anywhere near a playoff spot I would expect we would see the same thing we saw last year and they will ride out the season with him. If he is not producing you probably only get a bag of pucks for the guy given his contract.

Hemsky should have been traded at the deadline in 2010 or at the very least 2011. I think that ship has now sailed.
