By your reasoning Lindros was soft
You're arguing semantics, you know what he means. Kulemin is 100x more gritty than Hemsky. He does alot of good work on the boards, does an excellent job of containing the puck in his own end and transitioning, not to mention he is always the first one to back-check.

Nope, don't really have a spot or a need for Hemsky. Too injury-prone, past his prime, etc. Atleast Kulemin has a chance to rebound and contribute, he's only 26. Hemsky is 29, not that much older but still older.

Kulemin had 28 points in 70 games last year.

Hemsky had 36 in 69 games in his worst offensive season...EVER.

Even playing at his worst Hemsky is a better player than Kulemin.
There's more to winning hockey games than just points.Pot meet kettle.
