You mean how many times has Hemsky been on the Oilers' top line since Eberle's sophomore season? Hemsky would be a 1st line winger on more teams in this league than not. Eberle is the reason Hemsky is on the 2nd line, not Hemsky.

By your logic, Malkin, Hossa, Zetterberg, Backstrom, and Kovalchuk (at least last year) aren't first liners either.

Last season was the only time since the lockout where Hemsky wasn't among the top 12 RWs in the league in PPG. He's still in the top 30 now despite being on the Oilers' 2nd PP unit and behind Eberle on the depth chart at ES.
