It looks like my first order of business at the Nation is to sit on my ass and watch TV for the day. Life is good. Which Oilers will be traded? How many 4th round picks will we collect? No one knows for sure, but I'm "excited" to find out.

Last night was billed as Ales Hemsky's last game as an Edmonton Oiler, and if so he certainly delivered a fine performance. Reports on the morning of the trade deadline suggest New York may be his ultimate destination, but that might be dependent on the fate of fellow pending free agent Ryan Callahan.

With two goals on the night and likely playing in his final game as an Oiler, Ales Hemsky lead the way in a 3-2 win over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday.

Tonight will be Ales Hemsky's final game as an Edmonton Oiler. He will be traded before tomorrow's 1.p.m deadline. Hemsky played his first game as an Oilers on October 10th, 2002 against Philadelphia. He didn't score his first goal until his 26th game, January 4th, 2003 vs. Montreal, but during the past 11 hockey seasons his skill ranged from breathtaking to frustrating to dazzling and gutsy.
Hemsky made the playoffs as a rookie, but I'm sure he never dreamt that he would only play in the playoffs once during the subsequent 10 seasons. I can understand why Hemsky wants a new challenge in a new city, with new teammates and new fans. One post-season appearance in ten years would deflate anyone, and I fully expect Hemsky to play well on his new team.
