He is one of the few that is hard for opposition to overpower to retrieve a puck as he can absorb and reverse hit (not as well as Lucic though). This protects Markov and now it will be Drewiske's turn. I'm not sure he can do it as effectively.
So because Emelin was on the ice, it somehow made him a target to get hit and protected Markov? And the fact he's good at absorbing them makes Markov less vulnerable...?

Sorry, I just don't see it. That's grasping at straws. In fact, his turnovers and him getting out of his way/letting his player go made Markov more vulnerable than ever before on a hockey standpoint. He'll be missed, most of all, because he AND Diaz got injured. Once Diaz is back, we'll make up for his loss by commity.
