First player off the ice but the first player on the score sheet! Hemskys practice habits are way overblown here. The Edmonton media can turn the fans on any player. I won't disagree with the losing culture though, Gagner has been around for a long time too but he always seems to be motivated and works through it.

I've gone to numerous open practices and I've never seen Hemsky skate off early. The entire team gets off the ice at the same time except for the rookies who pick up pucks. Hemsky has left early plenty of times, probably due to a nagging injury.

The media here is ridiculous.
