One guy who is really starting to impress me is Emelin. You don't see the huge open-ice hits anymore, but man does he finish his checks. Always solid, always clean, but hard. Reminds me of Craig Ludwig a bit in that sense. He's also rarely if ever out of position now. Last year he was chasing a bit, I haven't seen it once yet.

That and he is gaining confidence with the puck. He's a lot more patient. Just the way he's carrying himself out there and logging those big minutes. Looks a lot more involved. Really nice to see his game being refined like that. He just keeps getting better.
