The fact you would think Hemsky is the equivalent of a Chistov, Perry, Getzlaff..et al is laughable.
Proven he can play and produce, sure. But it's not long enough to know for sure that he's the real deal as an impact player. He had a nice rookie year, and is off to a strong start in his first 20 games this year, but he's still a prospect. He's probably worth more than Chistov et al, but not THAT much more.

What's really laughable is that a guy who Oil fans have been hyping up as a 30-goal scorer, suddenly is not even worth a kid who's played all of 79 games. Either you guys must think Hemsky's the best thing since Mario, or Comrie's not as great as you claim, because if you truly in your heart of hearts believed that Comrie's worth what a 30-goal scorer typically is worth, you wouldn't put his value lower than one Hemsky.
