There are other "skills" aside from toe-drags. Hendricks is a tremendous asset and his style of play is conducive to winning whether or not you appreciate his particular skillset.

A Gagner fanboy calling out Hemsky for being inconsistent. Lordy. What a tire fire of a post.
Difference being that the people defending Gagner are saying that he is capable of becoming a good 2nd line center here and is worth substantially more than a 2nd round draft pick.

People are talking about Hemsky making $3.5 to $5M on the 3rd line, and saying that he is a better 3rd liner than Hendricks or Gordon. Utter ********.

When was the last year that Hemsky earned his pay, and if you really think about it how many extra millions has he made over the past 6 seasons or so? Gagner earned his pay last season and was injured by a freak "accident" or a deliberate stick infraction, not just from being a wimp. That stick would have put Shea Weber in the hospital.
