Not only did I ***** and moan when we acquired him, but I continued to ***** and moan during training camp when he was an abortion of a defenseman. I have no doubt that Valentenko outplayed him in the preseason games (although Emiger was coming back from an injury).

I am very glad that he proved me wrong, because he ended up being a very solid depth defenseman for us. I am very glad we're bringing him back.
