Hemsky has scored 140 goals in his entire NHL career. Statistically he's a dud in that respect and yet its oddly enough what his hilite reels are all about. Most of them are beauties, no doubt, but again this isn't figure skating. Fact of the matter is he doesn't score a lot of goals.

Next, he's nowhere near the sublime passer that people think he is. This team for years operated some very simple plays that even Omark could execute on occasion. Half of hemsky assists would probably be on passes across to a guy parked in lip of crease for a tap in. The scorecoff type goal. Much of the rest of his assists have Ryan Smyths name on them.

Finally, if you think Hemsky has much to do with winning you must've visited the worng board by mistake. I don't that winning and Hemsky ought to be in the same sentence
