Good face off man? sub 50% is not good in anyone's books. He's just not good enough at anything. We have a deep enough team that we can use a players situationally and put players in a position to succeed. I don't see what his strength is. Even people who complain about Sammy will say he has a use on the PP (but that's another thread).
Look, I'm not saying Emmerton is a God.
I think Abdelkader is better as a winger than Emmerton is a center.

But as centers go, I think Emmerton is better.
Emmerton has upside to be a "Greg Johnson" type, in my opinion.
