At the time 5mill per year for Hemsky didn't seem that bad to me. We have all seen what he can do.

He is not the same guy anymore. I still think he is a very good player and he will go down as my personal favorite Oiler for at least half a decade.

But.

-He plays tough but still isn't great in the corners.
-Isn't a big hitter.
-Much better back checking but still not his calling card.
-No longer has the ability to drive the play for a full game or a even better yet a full season. aka, he disappears.

He is not a top line player anymore. If he had better supporting cast he would be a good #2 RW.

I think he has been a nice depth scoring forward for us but really doesn't fit anywhere or have any solid chemistry with anyone. When he scores its usually a great individual effort.

He needs to move on for himself.

We need to get someone in that can play a heavier role in our top 9.

Oh and 5 mill is way too much for his role on this team... or any other as he currently plays.
