Oilers trying to lock up hemsky

According to pro sports daily:The Oilers continue to try and lock up Hemsky with a multi-year deal of either two or four years.His agent, Jiri Chra, seems amenable to the idea before his client has his arbitration hearing, scheduled for July 28. If he were to sign, say, a four-year deal, the Oilers might well pay Hemsky in the Horcoff range ($3.6 million US a year) because it would take him past unrestricted free-agency … They haven’t started working on a new deal for Lupul yet. He’ll cost them well over $2 million a year.
