I dont get why you would hate the idea of getting Hemsky. You want more speed in your team? Hemsky gives you speed + skill.

Hes basically the same player as Havlat, except havlat is more of a goalscorer (Both first round picks, both czechs, both near the same age (hemsky younger), both great speed and hands, both having injury plagued careers.)

Havlat had 3 consecutive seasons where he played less than 50 games, then goes on to be relatively healthy for 3 seasons, then last year went down again only playing 39 games. Hemskys biggest injuries have been in the last few years, hes played less than 50 games two seasons in a row, then last season was decently healthy putting in 69 games.

Hemsky has also hit 70+ points twice in his career and 60+ points once, while Havlat has one 70+ pt season and two 60pt seasons. (not pro rating)

Yet here everyone treats Hemsky like the forward version of Komisarek, and you dont hear a word about Havlat.
