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.
Hemsky isn't a particularly good playmaker either. This was a guy who was forcefed massive PP minutes for years and worked a pretty pedestrian halfboards PP. With the production of those units rarely being particularly good.

Fact of the matter is Hemsky is a player only in the NHL for offense, who other than a few years hasn't been particularly good at producing.

Lets not even pretend to compare the sublime passing and cycle ability of H Sedin to Hemsky jebus.

If Hemsky scores 60pts ever again in the NHL you can give me the gears here. I'll be here.
