lupul may continue to skag hunt
hemsky's shoulders could be reinjured.

does not reduce the fact there was a thread on how bad the signing of hemsky was.

Now we have a contract:
1. for more money per season
2. for 3 yr longer term
3. for a more games lost player.
4. For a less productive player.
Lupul has played 120 games in the last 2 years, Hemsky has played 117.
Lupul had 67 points in 66 games last year, Hemsky had 36 in 69.

Hemsky hasn't been worth that much since 2009. Lupul was worth much more than that just last year. When it comes to assessing contracts, it's more what have you done for me lately than it is going back 5 years to argue productivity.

I will take Lupul over Hemsky all day.
