As much as our D is now doing things through committee and keeping it simple, I really miss Emelin. He really does make the opposition think twice about going for that lose puck or even his open ice hits. Not only that, I think he was so key to our transition game. Dammit. I would be feeling very very confident about going into these playoffs if he was still in, provided Gio was taken off the PP (I just don't get it), now I just feel like that missing piece we tried to acquire was acquired, and then we had a huge hole punched in our perfect lineup. Itching to see Diaz. I know Beaulieu is getting a lot of praise, but I'm still not sold on him for this year. Fine, skating well in a blowout vs Buffalo, but I wanna see if he can pull a 2010 Subban.

Tonight's game will be a good first test now that he seems comfortable.
