Its no great shakes that Hemskys performance can even be compared to a 38yr old player with a million miles on the odometer
Smyth should make the Oiler hall of fame, Hemsky not even in the neighborhood. Agreed

But we are talking about Hemsky's future right now not how he compares to others (unless it has something to do with his future). I feel he has to be worth more than a second. Second round picks almost never even stick in the NHL at all. And it's not like it would be our second, it would be the second of a contender so mid-late choice.

Better off trading for, well, don't know. Make them take someone we want to get rid of as a package then a second isn't as bad.
