Emelin was the key physical piece on a fairly non physical D core and when he was gone that part of our game was gone. Davis Drewiske certainly could'nt fill his shoes, so it was obvious that Bergevin valued Emelins ability and tried to compliment it, albeit unsuccessfully. We need another Emelin and of course we need Price to stop the puck, he's paid like a top goalie so it's time to play like one.
I'm not arguing we don't need Emelin, I'm just saying his loss was not the reason why we started struggling.
