Please don't put Hemsky on the same level as Malkin or Richards or the 50 forwards out there that play on second lines that are better than Hemsky. On a number of teams, probably less than half - so he isn't really a first line type of guy. Malkin is a top line guy for 29 teams, just not Pittsburgh.

Fact is he is a second line guy in EDMONTON who gets hurt often; misses games; makes too much (5 million is utterly ridiculous) and is a pass first type of guy and doesn't really play a good two-way game. That right there tells he he is far from a first round pick plus top prospect type of return.
