Agreed, they love to throw the Habs name into every top 6 fwd available. but....
I think he would fit will in our top 6. Very skilled and fast, able to setup Cammy from the opposite wing, and anyone saying he's a typical soft Euro has never seen him play. No he isn't a Pwr Fwd, but he's not scared of traffic or hanging around in front of the net..
pending on the asking price, and with the available UFA's I think this could be a very good move for the Habs, he is still young enough to provide leadership to the younger guys, and be around as the younger players ie: Leblanc, Tinordi, Beaulieu join the team in a couple years.
Hemsky is one of the most talented players in the league, and he is not soft at all. Just because he has a European name, does not make him soft. He does have injury concerns...But either way, the guy puts up PPG numbers on a terrible team.
