Why Ales Hemsky is BEAST

'Cos he looks cool in slow motion and with cool music background

Never has a player in a body cast looked more threatening.

Ah Hemsky... Despite what all the haters say about him, he will always have a place in my heart.

I just wish he would shoot more. He's got such a sneaky wrister.

This video actually does more to increase his value than his current play in the Czech Republic League.

Ales Hemsky is perhaps the furthest thing in the NHL from a BEAST...skilled may be a better word

I'm surprised he didn't get injured when he fell over after scoring that goal at 0:40

An arm wrestling bout between Hemsky and Pascal Leclaire would end up with two fractured forearms.

I dont know what's more unlikely, an 82 game season for Hemsky, or a thread mentioning Hemsky that isnt 90% sarcastic comments about injuries.

Is this some kind of marketing campaign? If yes then it's a wrong place for it. You should send it to GMs...

DiPietro would get injured reffing it.

You forgot about DiPietro in the audience, who pulls his groin getting out of his chair when the match is over...

EDIT: Just saw the post above mine, lol.

Hemsky is a decent 2nd liner that gives away the puck too much. Beast? Not so much.

I love Hemsky's skill, but damn I don't think there is a player in the league who has more plays die with the puck on their stick than Ales.

Lets Put Salo, Hemsky and DiPietro in a ring.

I bet they all get injured taking the first swing.

His value never changed. Maybe some people might stop criminally undervaluing him now though.. It's sad how many think Lupul is better.


Video is excellent. Music is awful.. Sounds like it was synthesized in the early 90s for a $2 video game.

I'm not even kidding when I show people who have never watched hockey before videos of Ovechkin, Crosby and Hemsky everyone thinks the Hemsky videos are the most exciting/cool. Really weird. His game is so smooth and elegant.

Hemsky may be Beast, but can he be Cannon too?

Highlight reels don't do any player justice, otherwise Morgan Rielly is the second coming of Bobby Orr. I think people could make videos twice as long of Hemsky being terrible.

Not that I'm saying he is a terrible player, I just don't think he's anything special.

Hemsky is one of the most hated players on HFboards.

One of my favourite Hemsky goals ever is at 0:20... Fluery was stunned.


Oh and I just want you guys to know, who compare his health to DiPietro... Hemsky has played about 100 games in a row since his last injury.

Keep hating.

What's wrong with you guys?

He didn't get injured from this bone crushing hit last season



Why would he get injured from tripping? Get real.
