He's had bad luck with injuries the last couple years but was almost a point a game player before that. Even better, he's a pass first RW that would fill a HUGE need on the second line with Kane. He's still in his prime at 29 and signed through 2014. He does make 5 million but reading an article by Craig Button he figures the Oilers would likely be willing to eat half his salary to move him. He also mentions Hemsky wouldnt fetch much more than a 3rd round pick. A second line of Jokinen/Kane/Hemsky looks mighty fine to me. I think its a great match. Thoughts?
I wouldn't mind Hemsky as long as it doesnt cost much.
