Even with the cap going up, competitive teams are trying to get value for their money spent. The teams that aren't competitive aren't spending to the cap anyway. I don't doubt that Hemsky gets a contract next year but it isn't going to be any where close to being in the four million dollar range. It's been a very long time since he's put up the kind of numbers that warrant that.
But we are talking about the oilers here. Worth 4 mil in his role but not worth another role at all. Somebody has to be moved that is top 6 potential without question.

I get you think if he plays fourth line he should get 1.5.

Maybe we can put him on d. Cant be worse than some we have had and gotta be smarter.
