if you looked at per season stats it would be entirely different numbers. Of course the only numbers that actually count are the ones actually accrued.

Hemsky is made to look a lot better than he's been by pretending he hasn't missed 120GP in last 5 seasons. He's averaged around 10 goals and 30pts/year in those seasons. That's the reality.

In anycase I'm not sure how these are players that hemsky has "kept up with" he's bottom of the ledger by a wide margin the last few years.

Also, Hemsky was the beneficiary of a lot of those Smyth 30ish goal seasons. Smyth sure didn't require Hemsky to pot those.
