Maybe never. We've been small so long it almost seems mgm't accepts this as our identity and is afraid to change. Like when Lil DD was scratched we got 5'8" Dumont in his place, as if the midget ratio had to be maintained wtf...

If Murray is in the lineup Emelin becomes more effective IMO. Murray can get mean and drop the gloves whereas Emelin can't (shouldn't). This is the role Parros should be playing on F, low minutes but a "tough guy" so Prust / Moen can focus on hockey instead of intimidation/fighting.
