Also don't know if Connolly has ever played wing, I feel like if he could a line of him Stoll/Brown would work well with Smyth/Williams pushing back to Kopi.
To be fair, Connolly has missed almost double the amount of games Hemsky has over the past 5 years:

Connolly
2005-2006: 19
2006-2007: 80
2007-2008: 34
2008-2009: 34
2009-2010: 9
Total: 176

Hemsky
2005-2006: 1
2006-2007: 18
2007-2008: 8
2008-2009: 10
2009-2010: 60
Total: 97

Not trying to argue anything really...just putting the comparison into perspective a little better. Personally, I don't think you guys will trade for Hemmer. There are cheaper options out there. And where your team's at right now (in terms of developing into a contender), I wouldn't mortgage the future either. (ie Schenn). You're getting pretty close though!
