He's never going to have good hockey sense but he is a good player.
The problem with Hemsky is that he hasn't improved at all since his early years, he's the same exact player basically and it's frustrating to watch. I guess similar to accepting Horcoff for who he is, i should perhaps do the same with Hemsky. I feel that a crash and bang winger would be a better fit in Hemsky's place on the Gagner line, i just don't see where he fits on the roster anymore.
I wouldn't mind trying Hartikainen on that line, he has shown in the recent past that he can keep up and play well with skilled players (RNH and Eberle) so why not give it a shot maybe not now but sometime this season.
