You never know, if he plays well and they decide to spread the wealth, he may find himself on the top line, 2PP. Points will come. Even if he finds himself on the 3rd line with Smyth and Horcoff, he won't have to worry about playing against other teams top players which should open up the ice for him.
This being all said, I feel eventually Hemsky will be traded away to bring in a missing piece to the puzzle....ie defense or goalie If not he's still good to have around on any team. I JUST WANT HOCKEY!!!!
Guess I will never know. Shipped him and Filppula for Parenteau and Franzen. Would have liked to see how he made out, but also kinda glad to ship the headache.
