And, Hemsky seems to provide some of the same skills as PA Parenteau. Both about the same size, both shoot R, both are about 20G, 50A guys in the right situations. Hemsky probably has more skills, but PA has youth and a more favorable injury history.

What the Avs really need is another LW to play on that line. PA and Duchene could be a good combination, but who plays the LW? McGinn or Landeskog could both be interesting on that line, but that leaves a hole somewhere else.
As surprising as it may be, but Hemsky and Parenteau are actually both the same age (actually Hemsky is 5 months younger), so youth doesnt factor in. Also im not sure how you could call PA Parenteau a 20g 50A player whenn he has only 2 full NHL seasons under his belt, and only appeared on the map after he started playing with Tavares. Hes hit 60+ points once in his career, which was last year, and had 53 points the year before. Unless hes the exception, generally when you enter the NHL at the age of 27, your likely seeing what your going to get.
