I'm starting to worry about how much he's going to cost us. He's got to know that he's something we're in dire need of.

He developed his skills under the careful guidance of Jacques Martin

I hope we can sign this guy for a decent amount and long-term. First year playing in the North America and he has progressed very well and has been extremely impressive.

I agree with you, but he will be a rfa at the end of the year, so my bet is that he will sign another 1 year contract maybe 2 if we are lucky and then he will cost us a lot to keep him

I've always been a fan of the grinders (White is my favorite hab) but I can't avoid the Emelin bandwagon.

His hits are amazing and I'm someone who is all for getting rid of the head hits the NHL is talking about and I fully understand the current rule set. But Emelin just consistently lays down the hardest cleanest hits I have seen from a player in a long long time if not ever. No jokes aside.

He is a top 4 staple for the Habs the next 5 years easy peezy.

I have been waiting for Emelin to come to NA for years and he is even better than I could ever have hoped for!

and....this is still his ROOKIE YEAR (in the NHL at least)

Didn't know what to expect from him but I'm loving what I'm seeing thus far. Great clean hard hits.

I hate Malone and laughed my ass off when he charged towards Emelin only to get rocked.

This guy's great. I like how he "slides" under people when he hits them.

Here's his hit on Malone, by the way: http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/con...4&event=MTL558

It's funny because the video is called "Ryan Malone HIT on Emelin"

Wait until Emelin starts playing with Markov....then we'll appreciate his offensive upside, which I don't think we've seen yet.

Emelin needs a goon to protect him. He can't fight his own fights, and with the reputation that he is going to have, he'll need to answer the bell, above all if we're playing the Bruins 6 times a year.

Malone actually was credited for a hit on that

It shouldn't be too bad imo. Even tho he has an offensive upside, we did not see him contribute him ''point wise'' so far so an average of 2M a year would be reasonable for him short term.

Where are the multiple posters last year who said Gauthier shouldn't offer a contract to Emelin if it contained an out-clause ?

... yep, that's right, sometimes it takes a little "risk" to get great rewards.

I still believe in a few years, Emelin will be a Kronwall-like player, just bigger.

Emelin conatianed St. Louis all night! I was really impressed. Part of it was due to the physical matchup but Emelin got some sick breakout skills too. He can make those passes through forcheckers it seems.

Another great signing by Gauthier. I know he was habs property already, but Gauthier went out and did something that wasn't done since Emelin was drafted.
