So, let me be clear, you would take Hemsky over Kadri or Colborne/Connolly and a 1st?
Yes you are wrong.
Firstly, we didn't finish first overall
The Sedins were just coming into their own and weren't dominant in the regular season. They were good, but weren't viewed as the players they are today.
Linden was a 4th liner. Naslund was a shell of his former self and was more of a detriment to his line than an asset. Morrison wasn't much of an impact player. Edler was a rookie who hardly played. Kesler was a mere third liner. Pyatt was a plug who produced because its hard not to when given first line minutes with the Sedins even before they became elite. This was Bieksa's first full season, and although it was good, the team offensively was lousy.
Luongo carried that team.
And yes. I take Hemsky over Kadri, Colborne, mid 1st.
