The deal

Senators get: F Ales Hemsky

Oilers get: 2014 fifth-round pick, 2015 third-round pick


Ottawa Senators: B

There was a lot of interest from teams looking to add skill on the wing, and his two-goal game Tuesday night -- against the Senators, no less -- is a reminder of what the highly skilled Hemsky can do.

Considering the Oilers were willing to eat half of the salary and move Hemsky without demanding at least a second-round pick in return makes this a win for the Senators.
