Hemsky is nowhere near the value ATM.
Is this the Abdelkader who scored 2 goals in 12 games in the post season?
I know he plays a different game than Ales and maybe he is worth more in the right situation, but Ales clearly has a skill set to get to a ppg pace if his team is rolling....Abdelkader does not.
The notion that Abdelkader is worth more than Hemsky is ridiculous. Abdelkader will be on his fifth season and can't seem to score more than ten goals, the fact that that's all Hemsky is getting IS speaking to his dicey value, otherwise I'd be saying the difference is a 1st round pick.
Also, to clarify, by full cap retention I meant the maximum allowed under the CBA so Detroit can afford the contract....so 50% retained. My bad.
