That's all well and good, but this is the NHL, not Dancing with the Stars. We're talking about an offensive winger. Whether he can pirouette is less significant than the numbers he can put up, and whether he can stay healthy enough to stay on the ice to do so. Even if I buy that he's a unique player, which I don't, it has no significance on his value to Anaheim. With prospects like Palmieri and Etem knocking on the door, and Selanne, Perry, and Ryan already there, what is Anaheim's motivation here?

The value of this proposal is less important than Anaheim's needs, and Anaheim just doesn't need Hemsky. Not at the expense of DSP, who they do need.
