So we should concentrate on Korneev. Probably the best Russian prospect we have that looked like he'd be staying over there and still could. But the salary now might be a factor that could change his mind. No reason to concentrate on Emelin IF he would have come anyway.....
Exactly. People get all excited over Tank and Emelin, but Korneev really impressed me at the worlds I saw. The thing was played in NA, so it says something that Korneev was there and Emelin was not.
I hope we bring all three back, don't get me wrong, but what do we really know from Emelin save McGuire thinking he's god? Korneev I've seen and like.
