I'm not sure if you're downplaying Hemsky or upplaying Giroux, but either way I think they are pretty equivalent.

As has been said, a 70 point winger is pretty **** good, this isn't 2006 anymore.
Hemsky's problems with point totals have more to do with injuries and missing games than the fact that he's in Edmonton.

I actually have similar concerns with Giroux given his stature and how he throws himself into contact with regularity.
