It's frustrating that we're handcuffed with little to no options.
No, it's because we keep trying RW's at LW with him - it's like our GM's don't have a brain.

Erik Cole is a RW. Nail Yakupov is a RW. Why do we keep slotting RW's at LW to play with Hemsky? Blows my mind.
Those guys both look so lost playing on the left side, and 10x more dangerous streaking down the RW.

Hemsky isn't a C - he relies on the right side to make his plays, and needs guys playing in their familiar positions to score off the rush (which is usually how he produces, more-so than after establishing zone-time and cycling).
