They might sound the same, but they're very different if you put them into context of how they played.

They were both sieves on a horrendous team, but i'm just surprised they got signed so fast and Emery who played very well on the Ducks only got a tryout.

You guys are really disrespecting Elliot by comparing Emery to him and I saw a lot of Elliot last year. His performance last year was epically bad and one of the worst seasons I've seen from a goalie, particularly in Colorado. Nevertheless, Elliot > Emery.
