What a waste of a career. Hemsky has 140career goals.

For perspective on how mediocre that is Raffi Torres has 136 and has been relegated to bit bottomsix minutes on various clubs for several years.
And Henrik Sedin has 191 goals in almost a 1000 nhl games. Let's not pretend Hemsky was ever expected to be a goal scorer. He's a playmaker plain and simple and was pretty good one before his injuries. My point is that Hemsky is out the door in 4 days and instead of kicking him on his way out let's remember he was our only good player for a number of years. And I wouldn't be in the least bit surprised if he goes back to scoring 60 points on a new team and everyone here complaining we only got a 2nd rounder for him.
