I'm thinking there's some wicked D coaching and mentoring going on in Russia. It's like we've forgotten the things they're teaching. I 'd like to know who mentored and taught Emelin.
Everybody talks about the great Russian forwards but man, they've had absolute monster D too, for the last 40 years, that we hardly think of. There were many more than Constantinov. Fetisov for example was massive, just amazing apparently.
Love this kid, someone taught him to play in your face, stand you up at the blueline D. He's the best news this year.
Including Tinordi, Beau, Ellis, Bennet, possibly Deitz, we're looking pretty monster on D the next 5 years.
