"Despite the offer coming from Montreal, Alexei Emelin (Montreal Canadiens) opted to sign a new 2 years deal with Ak Bars Kazan. Montreal was really waiting for him for the 09-10 season but apparently he got a lucrative offer from his KHL team."
So now that Emelin has signed to play in KHL again, hopefully Gainey turns his attention to Konstantin Korneev, who is a much better player than Emelin anyway!
In fact he is similar in many ways to Andre Markov and is definitely talented enough to contribute to the Habs.
