More than that. Kaberle has gotten less ES time than Emelin in every single game they've been in together. Naturally that means Emelin skates with other people.

shanahan should send a video around the league showing Emelin and how to nail people legally. We have one of the best hitters in the league and I actually think he's got decent hands (keeps it in at the blue line and makes good passes).

Cannot wait until he hammers a bruin at the BC.

If I heard RDS correctly, the whole "you better fight if you hit" thing is already circulating about Emelin the way it went about Komisarek. IMO clean hits should not have to be defended, but if one of our guys got rocked like Emelin does to others, I'd be piissssssed!

And i guess it ll be the same for his offensive play, but that takes more time though, and you could see him pinching more, sometimes get burnt, but most of the times he does smart plays and throws accurates passes, so i m definitely not worried about his offensive games, it ll just take some time, but at least I know he s learning and doing things the right way
i've said the exact same thing before but no, that's too logical. the real reason is that martin told him not to hit.

on another topic, we all know markov is better with a left-handed shooter on the powerplay. that's when emelin comes in

His hits are sweeeet to the eyes, but what I liked more, was the smile he had on his face when his teammates congratulated him after the hit on Versteeg and the other one in the boards. Now, he just need to learn english properly, and we have a damn fine, still young physical D

^ 3 years/ 5.5M-6M



Emelin is coming out of his shell in the dressing room I think. He's often giving Carey a tap or encouraging him after a good save. His offensive game is starting to come out, but it doesn't get in the scoresheet as Diaz's

I love this guy, lock him up.

I think he'll get something in that range, hopefully 3-4 years.

My favorite player so far this season. Great to have a bright spot like him in the middle of all this mess that are the habs this year. And he will just get better and better with time

Alexei Emelin

this guy is the real deal. you can see this guys world class potential of being a shutdown guy and having players think twice when he's on the ice. With him gorges subban for the next few years, things will be exciting. I believe this team is going in the right direction.

plan the parade!
