With Emelin having a pretty solid year despite him looking pretty out of shape with a guy at camp, they might be looking at him to become that shutdown top 4 D. I also rather go with Emelin than any of the guys you mentioned.
Unless they can move two of Kaberle, Diaz and Weber, I just don't see how we're gonna bring in another Dman.
I am really hoping/looking forward to seeing Emelin patrolling the blue line for about 17 minutes ES and 3 PK per game.
I think we could be in for a treat, for all our overpaid guys, of which I really only think Gomez is "overpaid" I think Emelin might really provide a huge bank for the buck.
Really excited about him and Eller at the next 2 years for 3.325 combined
