Advantages to keeping Hemsky -
a) skilled depth on third line - we need someone capable offensively on the third line.
b) If one of the top six wingers does down due to injury - who's playing on the PP or the top six wingers? Ryan Jones? Jesse Jonessu?
c) challenge the top six wingers for their time. If Eberle, Yakupov, Perron goes into a slump then we have someone to take over and offer a different look.
I agree, no point to just dumping Hemsky for cap space, too many people are still in rebuild and tank mode. Keep hemmer unless you can replace him with something better. At this point we can't...
