Is Yemelin already the most important D-Man on this team ?

I hope he can fight. It's rare in the NHL to run guys and not back it up.
I hope he has a way of backing it up and not turtle.
I dunnow. Cooke ran Savard without much problem.

If his hits are clean, he shouldn't have to fight.

The Bruins' themselves claim that changed the whole mindset of their team. They went from a cowering team to a team that will drop the gloves. Part of that mindset cleaned the clocks of Spacek and Pyatt. And that was just a result of Subban and Pacioretty running away. Yemelin or someone else may have to answer including Markov.

The Canadiens have a history of players becoming timid once they arrive, and allowing guys who drop the gloves and hit hard to move along somewhere else.

If we could have guys like Yemelin, Schultz, Tinordi, and Bonneau stick in the nhl we'd be a tough team to play against.

I think it's because we think one guy alone can make the team tough. Moen was a tough guy until he stood up and found himself standing alone.
He's a good guy but literally no one of any consequence has his back. Eventually he's gonna decide it's not worth it. That's why we need to get a few more players who are tough.

Yeah and a lottery team. J/K but we don't need all that useless toughness. Being tough for the sake of it at the expense of skill is a bad idea.

he doesnt need to be the most important d-man. He just needs to fit as a peice of the puzzle.

Subban and Markov are the anchors on D

This reminds me of when Latendresse had his first camp in Montreal and people were hailing him as the next John Leclair.

There is reason for optimism, but I mean the first pre-season game hasn't even started yet.

remind me who pacioretty ran away from? or is it just the typical bruins mentality that if you throw a hit you have to drop the gloves immediately.

even if he has to drop the gloves.. what then? the guy will just have to learn how to throw some punches. He already got **** faced but nothing happened to disturb his play. It doesnt mean that if he gets it again, while putting the effort, that he wont be happy about his play.

And Komisarek.. dont bring his name around here. All of his hits were out of timing.

If you know how to deliver timely hits, it isnt that hard to repeat, wherever you are. It is something that is within a player.

I don't think Yemelin will ever drop the gloves after Svitov gave him a facial fracture. At least not against enforcers. Not willing to fight and being THAT dirty... omg.

Why are all the RDS staff are putting Yemelin number 7 in the D depth chart? In mine he's easily number 6+

Yemelin looks very good.
Most important D-Man I doubt it.

But after Subban joined and impressed last year, I feel Yemelin will do the exact same thing. He looks really mature out there, nice vision, nice reach. Nothing rookie-esque.

Also impressed with Diaz!

Diaz is very talented too. Very mobile, good hockey sense.

But he needs to relax and stop losing the puck accidently. Game 1, I am not nervous.

that's the most important thing in his case IMO, we will be run after or invited to fight if he hits as much and as hard as we think he will... wether he fight or not, as long as he keeps doing his stuff all will be good...

comparison to Komisarek (I know you didnt bring his name up) is poor, the guy was making fon of opponents and taunting them after hits, that's mostly why he was challenged. And rightfully so...

Chara and McQuaid

As for the rest of your comment I think that mentality can be said for a lot of teams and / or players. And I'm not saying it's right. Personally I think if you throw a good hit in the NHL the worst you should have to expect in return is a good hit by your opponent. But that isn't how some operate so hopefully Yemelin can stand up for himself especially if the hit is borderline.

It's worth getting clobbered after putting Krejci out of action for 6 weeks and then drawing a 5 minute penalty for the retaliation. That's the equivalent of scoring 5 extra goals in the course of a season on top of the 10 goals and 25 assists you score without putting on the hit. It shows up in the standings.

You need toughness in every pores of your team if you want to go to war and win it. Unless you enjoy figure skating wich is a different competition.
