Edit: Unless you mean after Anaheim...his performance in Anaheim wasn't that amazing. We needed a starting goalie, not a backup...and it seems unlikely Emery will ever be more than a backup now. He can play, but his game has taken a hit. He started strong for Anaheim, for instance, but I remember he faded as time went on. It's hard to believe that hip isn't a factor...it's hard to believe it's not a ticking time bomb even today.
Ok thanks for the posts, just wanted to clarify things. I forgot all about this stuff and/or didn't know. Was just wondering since he has good numbers this year.
