There's a big difference between producing in that situation on a team like Kladno and the situation Hemsky's in with Pardubice.

Established NHL 1st line center David Krejci has only 14 points in 12 games this season (a point/game lower than Hemsky's 21 points in 16 games). The only other players of note on that team are Josef Vasicek (remember him?) and Red Wings youngster Jakub Kindl.

There's a big difference here. Hemsky's numbers are pretty significant when he's out-doing someone like Krejci on the same team.
Hemsky may not be valueless, but stats in a Czech league most certainly are.
