Yemelin Hits Habs Ice (video!)

http://video.canadiens.nhl.com/video...d=68&id=121982

Also will wear 74!

Also one of Alain Berger, who's skating looks like it needs work.

We saw a couple of times Lars Eller, which means he is back on the ice, which is also a good news.

Wasn't it already known that Berger's weakness was his skating ? I really hope he can improves it.

Very cool.

His spot in the locker room is also telling.

Yup, but we get to see it first hand here.

I also checked out the highlight video of Yemelin along with the one on Habs ice...he's a pretty fluid skater...let's hope he develops well.

Pff.. that's not Yemelin. He's still in the KHL and will be here in 2 years.

Was my initial impression as well.

We could use more mobile bodies like that on the back end so hopefully he pans out like you said.

We'll finally have two good skating defensemen if he pans out.

Our biggest weakness is mobility and footspeed on the back end. Hopefully Weber can steal Spacek's spot by the end so that our D can even more mobile...but I think having Spacek stealing Spacek's spot...i.e having Spacek playing well will be extremely beneficial.

Definitely agree that we need more mobility. The only guy beating enemy forwards to the puck was subban.

Excited about Yemelin.

Maybe it's just me, but Berger looks like an asparagus out there. Definitely worse than Pouliot in this regard. From the looks of it, he could put on a bit of weight.

Well it was normal since our two others good skating guys last season were injuried (Markov and Gorges).

Damn right, I hate this time of the year, temperature is awesome, everything is great, but hockey is near, but not near enough ! Can't wait, and those little bit of news just adds to the excitement... I got no life

Between Subban and Markov in the locker room. Could not ask for a better spot

Subban: Alexxxx, my boy!! *triple low five with Price who passes by* Ate spaghetti earlier... so delishhh! oh wait! Do you know what spaghetti is XD ? you guys eat that in Russia? It's like pasta and tomatoe sauce... blablabla
Yemelin to Markov: Он всегда так?
Markov: Да. Теперь положите ваши коньки на товарища

Im a bit surprised to see this guy is already a lock when he hasnt played 1 minute in the nhl yet. Sends a nice message to all the other players who will be battling for a spot .
