I'd put him over Spacek and Weber if I'd need to replace someone.
Try to find a way to get rid of Spacer and/or package Weber in a trade.
Well Im not against him, but do you really want to dump Spacek than find out Emelin is not quite ready for the NHL? I mean we don't even know how effective Emelin will be in the AHL, it's a little too early to pencil him in over a guy with 800 NHL games no matter how much of a goat he is with certain Montreal fans. Lots of top Euro league players don't get shots in the NHL because they do go to the AHL and cant even really stand out there. Who's to guarantee Emelin will be an effective NHLer? Not even the Habs' scouts can which is why they want to be sure he can do some AHL time.
