Ales Hemsky playing 80 games a season is easily a 5 million dollar player. Ales Hemsky averaging 40 games a season during the course of his contract is a waste of valuable cap space that's better used elsewhere.
If Hemsky is put on the LTIR during the season you can use that cap space to bring in help at the deadline. And for the record I'm not against trading Hemsky but there has to be at least an NHL caliber player coming back. We won't have room on the roster to bring up all the young guys we have as it is. Also if you should be worried about anyone with a injury history it should be Whitney. He's had the same problem since he came into the league and from everything I've heard this new surgery hasn't gone so well, but there's no talk of trading him.
