But if he did, I think he could put up the points still... I'm just not sure the team he's playing on is going to be very successful.

I'm 27 so I missed the glory years and caught on in the early 90's. Hemsky is one of my favourite Oilers ever and I'll miss him when he's gone. Like him or not I think we all owe him the respect to admit he was a very good player for us while he was here, he was one of the only good players for quite a long time. I hope he has success where ever he goes.
Yep. The exposure that we each have has so much to do with our respective views. Its why my view on Hemsky would be so much different than some much younger Oiler fan.

That said your favorite Oiler could, and perhaps should be Doug Weight. Well it should actually.

Thanks for the discussion.
