I think I will file this away for the next time we discuss Sheahan as I am fairly certain that line will change.

I actually think Emmerton would be better on the wing. But I do agree with CB that Emmerton really improved his faceoffs over the backhalf the year and he is a pretty decent defensive forward. I would part with him over some of the other players, but he isn't a total lost cause in the NHL. If he could find the right situation he could take off, I just have my doubts that it will be in Detroit. I will say I thought he was one of our better forwards against Nashville, although it was hard to pick out bright spots in that series, I was happy with what he brought. He needs to be better on the pk to earn a spot, of course with the Knuble try-out I am starting to wonder if Holland already has some move lined up.
