Both are offensive wingers. Correct? The objective for offensive forwards is scoring goals. let me know when Hemsky ever scores 39 goals in a season. Or when he puts up 5 +30 goal seasons, or when he helps out on the pk, or when he makes a worthwhile contribution on various lines.

Smyth has 400NHL goals. Hemsky, in his his wasted NHL career can only dream of a lofty total like that. Hemsky has lol 140 career goals. That's it. That's all.

Theres no points for artistry in hockey. Hemsky goals are pretty, Smyth goals are regular. They ALL count the same.

Can't even believe I'm having to type this
Then don't. Hemsky is a better player this year. Smyth is hanging on to the past (as you seem to be).
