He won't hit 40 without getting hot. Theres only 22 games left. Hemsky has missed several games again this season. Hemsky ever hitting 60pt season again would require a high level of commitment, consistency, and good health. I'll be blunt. Its not happening for him anywhere in the NHL. I'll be here for posterity if anybody wants it as a bet

I don't think it's that far fetched, he's definitely under performing here anyways regardless of what numbers he'd put up. But even saying that it doesn't really matter because he doesn't have any value, and we really don't have much use for him here either.
Yep. Its sad how its played out.

perhaps the saddest thing is how many younger Oiler fans who haven't had much to cheer for have had this player to think about as their favorite player. So its sad how that player has turned into a guy that can't even fit into a lineup in the worst team of the league. I mean that sincerely, its kind of depressing I imagine. Thankfully I've been around to have had much better favorite Oiler players. I was never really sold on Hemsky tbh, but primarily due to knowing what great or even very good players look like.
