(my point being the defense sucked but he played fluid in the zone because of being out of the playoffs) stood on his head a couple of games but i'm not convinced with him yet. I watched enough blue jackets games on center ice after 2009 to know, regardless of his size, he found a way to let in tons of crap goals. maybe its the team change tho. goalies are weird like that. That said, i have tons of faith in Emery and the small contract in my mind makes it even more of a lock he'll play great when healthy. He's seems to be shying away from any kind of an albatross situation. I feel like he could've gotten a mil more.
I agree he'll be headed back to the KHL (been saying it from day 1 when the amnesty buy-outs came into play). I don't think it will be by his own choice though.
