Great for a guy with a total offensive output on ONE point....

I'd better have a defenseman who can hit really hard with one point than some useless Crapoli with two points.

or 2 goals Darche......

A guy with 17 seconds a game of PP time, and plays exclusively with offensive defenseman who constantly pinch. A guy who doesn't get credited for assists when he makes plays by taking people out of the play and the puck going to team mates. Emelin has created 10-11 goals this year for the Habs through his actions, despite not touching the puck.

He scored a goal. Once he gets the chance he's able. And once again: if you don't want him, give him back. We'll gladly accept.

I'm happy for him, I really hope we sign him long-term. He's adapted very well since coming over. Seems to be getting better after every day.

My next jersey will be an Emelin one as long as he's given a decent extension.

Emelin is a bright spot for les Habitants. One of the 6 guys who consistently played hard all year. They include Price, Gorges, Plekanec, Cole, Pacioretty and Emelin. The rest of them aren't worth mentioning..... Desharnais, Subban and Gill were ok and the rest were brutal...

He's a real keeper brings a dimension we sorely lack
We have enough offensive d-men that offend so we can't afford to lose him

He looks like he has some offensive upside to him as well. I could see him being on the second PP wave perhaps at some point in a year or two.

I think Emelin deserves a chance on the PP. He has great mobility and seems to be developing an offensive dimension to his game. With the way he's played defensively lately, he deserves it. Quickly becoming one of my favourite players, huge hits almost nightly.

Emelin is currently the best defenseman in the whole league at drawing penalties, averaging 1.3 per 60 minutes of 5 on 5 play. The top of the league looks like this (min 30 games played):

Emelin: 1.3
Letang: 0.9
Timmonen: 0.9
Demers: 0.9
Subban: 0.8
Ekman-Larson: 0.8
Giordano: 0.8
Bieksa:0.8
Petry: 0.7
MacDonald: 0.7
Faulk: 0.7
Braun: 0.7
Liles: 0.7

He is also tied with MacDonald for the best penalty differential among defensemen with +0.5. Subban's -0.3 is about average for a defender.

Priority: A tougher defense partner for Emelin

Emelin is a game breaker but eventually he's going to get hurt - the victim of a revenge-cheap shot. We all know how he wears down opponents with his relentless hitting and as importantly he's so dangerous in open ice that other teams know they can't take the middle for granted anymore and the result is that he slows opposing offensive systems down. Eventually he will injure other players and sadly, this has become part of winning in the NHL. This is an exceptionally effective player. Even though his hits are clean we know that's not going to stop other teams from trying to take him out with revenge-cheap shots, like yesterday. Eventually, he's going to get hurt. Since NHL referees and the league's disciplinary officials are completely incompetent in policing the game, if we want Emelin to stay healthy and effective in this role the Habs are going to have and find him a big tough defense partner to police instead and send the message that there are consequences for cheap shots. I'm not talking about someone who can't play the game properly but someone big and tough is a priority in my opinion. I fear otherwise that Emelin's career at maximum effectiveness will be shorter than we hope.

Which is why we need more size and toughness in the lineup, to discourage any thoughts of harming our players, ala John Ferguson. Cue the tree huggers crying about fighting.....

I'd prefer to pencil in Emelin as #5 with Weber/Diaz as #6-7. Sign a physical top 4 stay at home type.

You can see that he's used to the size of the rink now. Taking the right angles to punish people. Best part is that not only are his hits huge, but they are all clean.

I like him. Its about time we had someone who makes the opposition's forwards think twice about taking the puck up his side.

Those hits also wear down the opposition. Those players won't have much left in the tank as the game progresses.

Offensively, I'm happy that he isn't taking dumb shots that never have a chance of making it to the net and result in a rush for the other team or the puck leaving the zone. He also pinched against Toronto (not sure if right game) and almost scored.
