Why? Because Hemsky is so underrated that he has now become overrated.
i wouldn't trust a fans poll (just look at the silly Habs fans voting in 4 of their own players) as a TRUE indication of which player is better. I think that if you ask actual hockey experts (guys who's job it is to make actual decissions like this) that though they may sya they are close, Gagne would get more than 75% of the votes.

As shocking it may be to some of you Edmonton fans, Gagne has the decent lead in the poll. (I know a HF poll isn't to be taken very seriously)

EDIT. I don't disagree that Briere is a good player. He's definatley worth every penny of 5.5 mil a season.
So are you saying that Souray is worth his contract? How about Horcoff and his newly signed contract that comes into play next season? Those are 2 contracts that Lowe screwed up on. He overpaid to get Souray here because he lost out on landing a big name free agent and this was his "big catch".

As for Horcoff, he most definitely not worth the contract. I mean Gagne is getting less than Horcoff and he is a better player than Horcoff also. Something doesn't add up on Edmonton's side.
