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.
Pretty much agree except that with his injuries I dont think there was ever a good deal on the table for Hemsky. Maybe they could have dealt him in 10 or 11 but it would have only been for draft picks and not high ones.
