UTIED, to answer your question, yes, the sprocket hub is quite loose. for instance, if you had your wheel laying on the ground, brake rotor down, and tried to pick up the wheel by the sprocket, it should have just slipped out.... It's a dampner of sorts for hard shifts and the like, intended to extend chain life, soften jerks on the drive train which should keep traction better, and there for, extend tire life...
