Anyway where it isn't comparable is Sedin having 400 more pts than Hemsky.

Hemsky could play till he's 40 and not reach H Sedins total pts.
No worries I think we're all a little aggravated from watching the dumpster fire that it is Oilers hockey. And you're right he'll likely never catch Henrik but a key reason to that is Hemsky missing 2 consecutive season in his prime due to injury and then playing second fiddle to the "young guns" when he returned. That would have a negative impact on anyone's career. But I ask myself if Hemsky didn't get injured in 09-10 and 10-11 do we have Hall and Nuge? Probably not. We would still be a bubble team praying to get a star to come play with Hemmer.
