I have a lot respect for Volchenkov so I don't take anything away from him. As for Hemsky, his injury is basically both shoulders, and that's because he's taken a number of big hits over the years. Many criticisms can be made of him, but the guy is not a wimp. If he's healthy, and there's some reason for optimism here, then I would expect a very productive season out of him.
