I'd take Emelin over prime Komisarek any day. Prime Komisarek had prime Markov. Emelin is just as strong while being way more mobile and offensively gifted. The only thing wrong is his poor decisions with the puck and giveaways but none ever seem costly. If we can sign him long term at roughly Gorges money or cheaper I'd be ecstatic.
No, I think that the people who are negative toward Emelin are the same ones who will scream about Subban playing with Boullion on the third pairing.
Another Eller vs DD drama in the making.
This happens when people pull more for the name on the back of the sweater instead of the CH on the front.
