That doesn't mean he'll start on the top 6 either. Habs quite probably told him that he'll have to be patient and that the frequency of injury in the NHL will take care of the rest, which will also help ease his adaptation period. He's not gonna come here like some primadona who wants to play every night right off the bat. And we'll still need to add another D, especially since we have the opportunity of temporarily switching Weber on forward to also use him in case of injuries. I don't think the Habs would ever had sign Emelin if they thought he'd buckle at the fact he'll have to take it slow and act as 7th D to start off.
