He's never gotten the kind of minutes that the Sedins, Stamkos, Malkins get due to team dynamics he gets the Datsuyk type minutes and like Datsuyk his production suffers. Note: I am not saying Hemsky is as good as any of these guys i am only pointing out the difference in usage that leads to some disparity in points.
Those guys can all create their own space on the ice. Even the Sedins. Hemsky just isnt anywhere near those guys even if he received 30 minutes a night.
