IMO if Emelin was healthy, Drewiski and Bouillon would be our 7-8th d-men, which is perfectly fine with me.
He also has cup experience. He didn't play much, if at all during those playoffs, but he has the experience of playing in the Stanley Cup.

Honestly, I'd take a 5th, or a 6th. I know Bergevin was asking for a 2nd rounder for him at the deadline, which I think is insane, but hey, it won't hurt to try, right? I'll just be a little agitated if we get rid of him without a return. I'm sure there's a team who would take a chance on him, even it is a 4th or 5th round pick.

Second, yeah the Flyers traded for Streit, but they need someone like him. They need a PP quarterback. We don't.

Bergevin signed a cheap 7th D...nothing less and nothing more. We don't want a young player like Beaulieu riding the bench...
I believe Bergevin liked watching him when he was with the Chicago organization, as CHI played LA a lot.
