I guess no one sees that by the mid point of the game Emelin is as slow as molasses out there.
His positioning has little to do with markov. Emelin is not the greatest skater to begin with. Sometimes, those big hit opportunities come at the expense of being in good position.

But my bigger complaint against emelin is his lack of composure with the puck. He tends to get all twisted up if the puck ends up around his feet, and he is prone to the odd careless turnover.

The lack of mobility as a whole is a concern on that pairing, which is even more incentive to play positionally sound.
