Again, it's not because we're missing his physicality that he's the reason why we've been playing horribly.
That's absolutely ridiculous.
I think it is more logical than ridiculous. If you say "we suck now" and then look for reasons why, that process will not illuminate a single shining path that leads to Emelin's loss, I agree.

But this is a Tinordi thread and the idea seems to be we could use a physical D to compensate for Emelin's loss. Hits are important I think you will agree, and as I posted above Emelin had about as many hits as Subban, Gorges and Markov's combined total. That's huge. Also believe we'd have to agree that come playoffs the games' physical aspect ramps up.

Ergo we hope Tinordi can fill the Emelin void, as Weber et al can't.
