The Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with right-winger Ales Hemsky on a two-year, $10 million contract extension. The 28-year-old has scored five goals and 26 points in 41 games this season.

Many NHL writers, and former NHL star Mike Modano, suggest Ales Hemsky got too much in his new two-year, $5 million per year deal. I think Hemsky got the right amount. This deal made sense for the Oilers and for Hemsky.
Here’s the reaction on Twitter:
Mike Modano: “2 yrs/10 million for hemsky. Scored over 20 goals twice in 9yrs.. WTF..!!?”
David Shoalts, Globe and Mail: “Has The Riddler or The Joke been seen lately at Edmonton Oilers HQ with cannisters of stupid gas?”
Scott Burnside of ESPN: “Ales Hemsky; two years $10 million just goes to show you $10 million doesn’t get you too far these days in the NHL does it?”
