HF has historically lambasted Hemsky and his injuries and this has undervalued him.

He looks great this season, belongs in Edmonton's top 6. Edmonton would not trade him even if they are falling out of contention unless they got a sizeable return to fill a major need, top 4 D plus or a big bodies legit top 6 winger.

I love seeing him come back so strong. Not going anywhere.
That's good, he's where he belongs and that's why he re-signed and why the management wanted him around.

So let's just keep it at that.

Probably the whole "re-signed him last year" part is a dead give away. Teams tend to move guys instead of re-sign them if they want to go in another direction. Hemsky seems to want to be there and the management wants him there, he's got 7 goals this season, he's where he should be.
