Connolly plays both center and left wing. They are the same player, in a distant sense. Hemsky is a much more skilled playmaker, and his hands are slighly below Connolly's he just has a greater hockey sense. But they are two players who are often injured and put up a boat load of assists more than they do goals, but Hemsky definitely has the edge in the goal scoring department. I think he could pot 25 and maybe more next to Kopitar; whereas with Connolly, he should be lingering around just under to exactly 20.
