Wouldn't even consider it with Hemsky unless it was a big overpayment coming back. He's too vital.
This isn't the case.

One can only look at recent years as I don't know we have the player that put up that kind of pts and play in 05-06.

Oddly enough Gagner as a mere kid is in a deadheat in pts attained with Hemsky over the span of Gagners tenure.

What you get with Hemsky is a guy either out of the lineup, playing hurt, or playing in a funk. I'm glad Hemsky has stepped up right now but considering Gagner has given us the same contribution Hemsky has while still being in his formative years its a no brainer who ends up being the much more productive player. Gagner will smash any career pt totals Hemsky has attained. Would not surprise me if Gagner flirts with a 1000pt career....

Plus Gagner is a Center and more valuable just on that basis.
