Yep, major difference in players.

But we are talking about Hemsky's future right now not how he compares to others (unless it has something to do with his future)
But Hemskys future at least as based on his last 5 seasons is tenuous at best. Really without a few topflight years I think the team might have completely given up on Hemsky. he's been a shadow of his former self for quite a longwhile.

I feel he has to be worth more than a second. Second round picks almost never even stick in the NHL at all. And it's not like it would be our second, it would be the second of a contender so mid-late choice.

Better off trading for, well, don't know. Make them take someone we want to get rid of as a package then a second isn't as bad.
WE need players not picks but I don't know we get much of a player for Ales Hemsky at this stage. Probably have to package to get much in return.
