Proposed Penguin trades: Day 1.

Everyday until the trade deadline we'll post a proposed Penguins trade. You can send yours in over email to thepensblog@gmail.com.
But don't bother sending just the trade proposal. We want a detailed post with cap numbers, reasoning, etc.
 
 
We'll start:
 

Proposed trade teams: Penguins/Oilers.

 

The trade

To Penguins: Ales Hemsky
To Oilers:  Tyler Kennedy,Dustin Jeffery, 3rd round pick
 

Reasoning

 Even though Hemsky is having an embarrassing season ( 4g 18a -15) he is a legit 20 goal scorer, and he has big time talent. He can create space, and he can dish the puck. 
 

Financials:

Hemsky, Ales  $1,285,40
 
Kennedy, T. » $627,027
Jeffrey, D. » $180,270
 
 
 
Pens would probably have to cut someone or throw a different player in the trade as they would be over the cap.
 

Summary:

Yea this trade probably doesn't happen. Had to throw Jeffrey in because he is probably the Penguins that has the most value. Kennedy's value is his cap hit. Hemsky is a floater, would thrive if he played with Malkin or Crosby. Not a grinder at all, though. This is assuming maybe Crosby comes back. Also, Hemsky is going to be a free agent. So his cap money, and the money owed to Kennedy could go to James Neal.
 
Projected Lines: Dupes-Crosby-Hemsky
                                Kunitz-Malkin-Neal
                                Cooke-Staal-Sullivan
