Various sources report tonight the Edmonton Oilers have re-signed winger Ales Hemsky to a two-year, $10 million contract extension, worth an average cap hit of $5 million per season.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Poof! There goes another possible trade target heading into this weekend. It’s obvious the Oilers are gambling on Hemsky staying healthy the next two seasons and regaining his 60-70 point form. If he stays healthy, this could be worth it. If not, this contract will provide GM Steve Tambellini’s critics further ammunition to call for his firing.
