No he did have a couple good scoring spurts last year, but even then, on the 3rd line even when his offensive game is on he will have less minutes and less skilled linemates.
So in my view, the only way for Hemsky in Oil Silks to work is for Hemsky to BE BETTER. If Hemsky can even attain let's say half of Hossa's defensive game, he'd be awesome. But Hemsky can get lazy and can get hurt easy. I think Hemsky's gotta spend 1 summer just BULKING up.
Can you get a tiger to change it's stripes? Can you turn a rock into a diamond? Can you teach an old dog new tricks? I think you know the answer without even having to start a thread asking about it.
