Potential Hemsky Trade?

Apologies if the Fanshots are the wrong place for this. Looking at the Capitals' roster, the second line is quite weak. Aside from Alexander Semin, no one who plays on that line with any regularity can control the puck and drive the play with any consistency. Ideally, the Capitals trade for a good center and move W-turned-C Tomas Fleischmann back on the left, but with seemingly only one good center potentially available for trade (Brad Richards), maybe the best strategy is to add a wing. Given posts here at Copper and Blue about ES Points% and other Corsi measures, Ales Hemsky looks like a really good player for the Capitals to chase. I have three questions: 1) Is there any realistic possibility Ales Hemsky gets traded this season? 2) If yes, along what lines would the asking price be? 3) Would the Oilers be interested in a trade package from the Capitals not involving Ovechkin, Backstrom, Semin, Fehr, Laich, Chimera, Johansson, Green, Schultz, Poti, Carlson, Alzner, Varlamov, Neuvirth, or multiple first round picks?
