If this deal was to go somewhere i'm guessing buffalo would have to take on Hemsky's salary.
I don't think anyone has said a single thing about Foligno in this thread. The premise of Yakupov for an impending UFA in Miller regardless of the secondary pieces is absurd.

There is no deal here to be made. Having the Oilers give up Hemsky to get rid of his salary makes the deal worse, not better.

The Oilers are happy to keep Hemsky and his salary, there was discussions in the off-season that maybe it would be better for both sides to move on, but no deal was struck and both were happy to be back with each other. Despite being overpaid, Hemsky can still be a contributor to the team, especially if the Oilers were to trade away Yakupov (which would in a million years never happen for a UFA).
