I said at the time that Emelin was a huge loss. Some people actually disagreed which is hilarious. He was a plus player while playing with a partner who was a minus. Played 20 minutes, was our top penalty killer, and was a hitting machine. Teams had to be weary of him. Now? Who on our D is anybody afraid of? Nobody.
Very soft D. Problem is you can't just go out and pick up an Emelin. They're tough to find. I'm glad MB didn't trade away this year's draft picks. Maybe next year, but not this year. Too good of a draft, and there's simply not enough depth in the organization.
The important thing is we're already in the playoffs. What we do then is what matters. Now, we just need to try to hold onto home ice advantage.
