Imo he's the biggest Euro prospect that we need to bring over since our lack of D prospects in the AHL is a glarring weakness and he's still very young/raw, so it's good to get him over here as soon as we can to get him adjusted to the smaller ice surface. I really hope something can be worked out that's fair to both Emelin, the Habs and Lada.
I've been saying this for the whole last year!
