He's also playing with a slow but offensive minded Markov, and as elite as Markov's positioning is, you don't want to force Markov to get into a foot race by being out of position to make a big hit. Markov is a lot more conservative out there on even strength than he used to be, but if Emelin ignored positioning to hit everything that moved Markov would pretty much have to park himself in front of the net.

I mean I'd lvoe to see Emelin wreck more guys this year, but we need him to play defense too.
