Generally intrigued to find out what you think would happen if Emelin was playing for Toronto (we'll even use a 'tough team' as an example). Emelin's on the ice with the Bozak line (was out with Desharnais, Patches and Gallagher when the Chara incident occurred) and takes what Chara perceives as a cheapshot at Seguin causing Chara to go after Emelin. What happens? Does Phil Kessel fight Chara to save Emelin? Are Orr or Mclaren jumping the boards to come to the rescue at the expense of a ten game suspension?

Or what happens if Emelin, playing for Toronto gets in a push, shove and stick battle with Foligno after which both drop the gloves. Emelin was out with the third line on that occasion so that would equate to Kadri, Komarov and Frattin for the Leafs recently? Which one of those do you anticipate taking the third man in penalty? Or is it Phaneuf? Or are Orr or Mclaren (whichever wasn't suspended the last time) jumping the boards again?
