Things People Say About Ales Hemsky

Gee, if the Oilers could only find a way to get rid of a top six scorer…

If Ales Hemsky was never injured, would people say things like this?

Hemsky is a big reason that the Edmonton Oilers were able to take two points out of Vancouver last night.  He scored a power play goal in the third period to tie the game at 2, then scored the game winning shootout marker to give the Oilers a win.

Obviously a liability.

If you take a look at his numbers, you’ll notice that last year he didn’t keep up that sparkly .75 points per game number that we’re all so used to seeing. So that can only mean that the team should trade him for a third round pick and a prospect, right?

Right now, Ales Hemsky is a hero for leading the Oilers out of Rogers Arena with two points. If he can have an injury free season, you’ll be hearing his name a lot more. Only this time, it won’t be the trade bait in a ridiculously lopsided deal.
