A lot of flip-flopping going on, methinks. That or people needed a reason for why we started sucking so suddenly and tacked it onto his loss when there's no evidence for it. He wasn't playing well enough to be the reason or even part of the reason for our streak of suck. I'm not saying he was playing badly, but he was having a B-/C+ season and it's being talked about like he was scoring an A-
Well either you have a very selective memory or you weren't around in most GDT because I remember pretty much every single game as soon as Gorges and Bouillon hit the ice for second PP unit, a bunch of us were very irate and puzzled as to why Emelin din't get any PP time.
