The only thing Emmerton "might" do better is skate, but its not like either are known as great skaters.

I wouldn't be upset if Emmerton was just outright released.
Emmerton is a good skater. He surprises me with his speed, acceleration and agility.
Watching Abdelkader at center reminds me of Kopecky at center.

Emmerton looks like a young, borderline NHL center. Which is what anyone could anyone could expect.

Abdelkader looks like someone playing out of position.

Abdelkader is a liability at center. Take a look at his two playoff runs at center.
