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.
Abdelkader is definitely not a great center, but he's much much better than Emmerton at the position. Emmerton has no physical edge, is the worst faceoff man on the team, is a nightmare defensively and is only a year younger.

Emmerton would have trouble cracking even bad teams line-ups at C.
