How could Hemsky not be worth at least a 1st?

Look at a team like Calgary (No offense), their draft record has been one of the worst over the last decade. So every pick is a gamble essentially.

Most GMs would love to have a mid-late 1st round pick turn into a player of Hemsky's skill/talent.

So why trade a player that is already proven for a potential bust?

An injured Hemsky is still worth more than 10,000 Alexandre Daigles.
if that is so why hasnt it happened?

a 1st round draft pick is a lottery ticket

a lottery ticket is worth more than paying 5M to an injured Hemsky

its funny in many ways Hemsky on this board has become the new Kaberle
