He could be, but how often do you see that happen? And the same comments I made before apply. If the Oilers are doing well and he is contributing then my guess is that they would not move him. If he is playing poorly or hurt there is no market. So you really need the team to be pretty much giving up on the season and Hemsky be playing well to move him at Christmas for anything more than a bag of pucks.
The teams best opportunity to get something for him has past. If some team suffers a significant injury to a top 6 winger in the preseason, or if they really feel they need Hemsky's skills you might get another shot. But don't expect much in return since you are selling at a fraction on the dollar.
