Ales Hemsky...

With a combination of past injuries and an injection of talented youth to the Oil, Hemsky has become a target by the Oiler faithful and other fan bases for not being worth his wage or what ever the argument is. So I made this video to remind who ever watches it that he is a legit threat in this league....plus work has been slow, I was bored, and wanted to make a video I hope he rips it up for us post lockout! The quality of some of the clips are sketchy, so I apologize...but for what ever reason it's hard to find clear videos older then 2 years old. Enjoy!

If 50 Cent were to make a rap song about Zelda, this is what the beat would sound like.

In all seriousness though, good video.

Good work. Hope he can flirt with 20 goals when hockey starts back up. There is no longer an excuse that the talent pool isn't there....

Nice vid. And isn't amazing to think that with how sick of hands Hemmer has that Eberle's hands are even smoother?

Much more important than talent, certainly. What's JF Jacques up to these days anyway?

How about Lucic,Horton,or Brown?All three,were major contributors in winning a cup for their team.

Glad to know the only way to win a cup is by having tough guys. Horton has concussion problems, Lucic didn't do much last post-season, Brown was on the trading block but ended up being a huge part of LA's run.

Let's see how this team actually performs in the playoffs before deeming players inadequate for winning a cup.

Can't never have enough vets on the team. Besides it would be cool to see if Hemmer could play on his

That video reminded me of the spark that Hemsky used to have, something that has been missing the last three years. If he can find that confidence again, he could easily hit 60-70 points if healthy and be a positive contributor to the team overall.

Had you told me three years ago that THN would list Purcell, Vrbata, Parenteau, Burrows, Pavelski, Franzen, Jagr ahead of Hemmer in the top 20 RW in the league I would have told you to eat **** and die.

Hemmers signed pic that I paid big bucks for, says, " Time to step it up". I do have some faith left.

This video could have been of Hemsky stabbing multiple fans just trying to get some autographs, and I wouldn't give a ****. He'll always be my favorite player.

Toughness? Yes. Grit? Yes. Size? Nope.

It's a common misconception among hockey fans that size makes you a better playoff team. You do need toughness and grit, which is definitely brought by a lot of guys on our team, even if they don't have size.

When games are meaningful, I'm confident we'll see a lot more from guys like Gagner, Eberle, etc.. in terms of toughness/grit.
