A Hemsky Trade Could Work Out

from Jim Matheson of he Edmonton Journal,

Would you trade Ales Hemsky?

I know, I know. His Edmonton Oilers contract is user-friendly in today’s salary cap world. His cap hit for the next three seasons is a very agreeable $4.1 million, less than Dustin Penner’s number, although Hemsky’s salaries are $4.4 million, $4.5 million and $5 million during the last season in 2011-12. On the other hand, his contract is also attractive to other teams that might want to trade for him.

If the Oilers could get two front-line players for him, at least one a bigger, stronger body like winger Dustin Brown of the Los Angeles Kings and retrieve hard-nosed defenceman Matt Greene, too, would they consider it?

Is it that far-fetched? I don’t think so.
