The Habs brass need to figure it out quick,or add him to the long list of one's who got shipped out or left for little return .
At the cost of not playing someone who earned a spot?

It's a tricky situation, but when you start catering to players for ANY reason other than their contribution on the ice you're going down a slippery slope.

I don't want to see Emelin leave. But I also don't see any reason to remove Diaz or especially Weber from the lineup right now. And as much as many here suggest rotating Gill or Spacek to let him play we all know that is not happening.

Personally, if I'm Emelin I'm asking to go play in the AHL, learn the ropes, learn English, and come back hungry and a monster ready to go in the big league. But that's just me.
