Hemsky has had one awful season (out of 9) which happens to be last year AND he still managed to put up more points than Kulemin while playing less games. Kulemin has had one great season (out of 4) in which he scored 30 goals. I laugh when leaf fans say he's a 30 goal scorer, his average for his 4 years in the NHL is 17 goals a year right now so technically you wouldn't even be able to call him a 20 goal scorer.

It's fine to compare Kulemin's physicality or his defensive game to Hemsky's, but Hemsky is definitely the better, and most proven offensive player.
