I agree. I can't imagine how frustrated Emelin must be. Going from a Top 5 defenseman in the KHL to a healthy scratch in a team with a decimated defense. Worse is that the 6'7'' pylon is playing over Emelin.
If he just storms out to the KHL mid-season, I won't even blame him.
Yup. From a scratch to a forward, or maybe scratched again. But you can't teach an old dog new tricks, and Jacques ****ing Martin has not got a ****ing clue how to work with younger players.
I remember we once have 4 defensemen on the ice at the same time. I think it was in the Carbo era, and there was a picture of the 4 of them chasing a player on on a breakaway haha. Does anyone remember that? One of the D was probably Streit, who was the other one at forward?
