Emelin has been average defensively since coming over. Yes, he's a great hitter, but he's nothing special in his own zone. On the other hand, I feel like his offensive potential is underrated and under-utilized. I think he would do fairly well on the PP if given the chance.

I'm satisfied with his contribution. I think he should solidify himself as a decent n.4 defenseman in the next 2 seasons, but let's not pretend he's anywhere close to the standard Gorges or Subban in his own zone.
