This 50X over.

No fan now going forward should ever say that Hemsky doesn't give a crap or is all about the money because signing for a 2 year term to stay in Edmonton shows that he wants to be here and show that he can contribute at a high level again. It's a huge risk on his part because if his body falls apart this will likely be his last big dollar contract.

He could quite easily have walked away to free agency on July 1st and hit a jackpot contract for something in the $5 mill x 5yr range, but instead has chosen to stay in Edmonton.

A lot of respect for Hemsky over this deal.
