$5mil a year for a guy of Hemsky's calibre is a steal. And you're not screwed if he's injured because it's a 2-year deal with no strings attached

Nyquist, Brunner, Tatar, etc are nowhere close to filling the role that a healthy Hemsky would provide. Hemsky has a much better chance of playing like he did when he was younger than any of those guys progressing to that level.
