OILERS’ MACTAVISH: HORCOFF AND HEMSKY COULD BE MOVING ON

Craig MacTavish promised to make changes to the Edmonton Oilers over the offseason and it may start with two of the team’s long-standing veterans.

In an interview with Team 1260 Radio in Edmonton on Thursday, the new general manager suggested that captain Shawn Horcoff and winger Ales Hemsky could be done with the club.

“I think both those players are at a similar crossroads,” MacTavish told the radio station.

“Sometimes change is good for both the organization and the player, but at the same time they’re valuable players and we’re not in a position where we’re able to move them without getting something substantial in return…I have a lot of allegiance and a lot of loyalty to ‘Horc’ and to Ales. I have a lot of respect for both those players. But from both those perspectives, I think the ideal scenario would be to move them on and wish them the best in their next destination.”
