You do realize Kessel had 13 more goals this year, at the age of 21 the Hemsky has ever had in his entire life.

Oh Hemsky is a pass first player? So is Krejci who scored 22 goals, 1 less then Hemsky's career high, and 73 points, 4 less then Hemsky's career high. All while playing 3rd line minutes in his first full season.

But both of these players are "over achieving"? Come see me in 1 year when Kessel doesn't get mono and puts up 40 goals and Krejci is over a PPG.
I like the Oilers. Read and post on the Oiler board a fair amount, but there is not another fan base that overrates a single player like Hemsky.
Dustin Penner and Shawn Horcoff<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<Michael Ryder/Phil Kessel/David Krejci/Milan Lucic/Patrice Bergeron. (At least 2 of those, I dont know Bostons lines)
