The most talented Oiler, probably by a longshot. A deceptively fast skater, Hemsky has the ability to go around or through opposition defenders. Hemsky has a frustrating tendency to hold onto the puck for too long and give up multiple glorious opportunities to shoot choosing instead to pass the puck. Actually has a very good shot. Can sometimes be caught floating, his defensive positioning is improving but still has a ways to go. Is not physical at all and has had some injury problems in the past. There is a rumour that Hemsky was requested as a member of Team Czech Republic for the Olympics by Jaromir Jagr.
