Oilersland Vol. 3, When Tambo Decided To Trade Hemsky

Editor's Note: Our favorite cartoonist Mike, he of Covered In Oil, returns today with the third installment of Oilersland. Tambo and Tencer went to the moves in Volume 2.

Ales Hemsky has three games left as an Oiler, and I think Loxy said it best:

In just over a week, we’ll be saying happy trails to Hemsky.

He was a step off when he came back from injury and now he’s just a half-step behind. I imagine he’s about 8 days away from full go. Just in time for the trade deadline.

As an Oiler fan who put up with the last 10 years, I wish him well. I have no qualms with Horcoff or Smyth but Hemsky is the only magic left from ’06. And he is real magic.

I look forward to what he’ll do for another team in a playoff run.

I look forward to seeing what crap we’ll get in return.

But I wish they’d treat him like the best player of the Oilers of the last decade, because he was/is.

As for Klima, well...
