Fantastic signing!

One of the better things to look forward to last season. Every pre-game on Twitter had dozens and dozens of people talking about who he'd hit first, what type of hit it would be and so on. He even had a hashtag to his name.

Bravo, Bergevin!

Liked him from the 1st time I saw him play in the KHL, I'm glad he's resigned.

Hopefully Therrien will give the kid some PP time.

Hoping the coaching staff is a fan of this kid. He deserves some solid minutes.

What were Therrien's views on him from his time at RDS?

I think that Emelin and Eller will be key players in the potential success of this team next year. I hope that Emelin can become a reliable 4th defenseman and Eller can become a shutdown center and take some workload out of Plekanec.

Good, I'd like to see him on the 3rd pairing to start the season, because that would mean we signed a legit top 4 guy to play with Markov.

This is a great signing & I'm a big Emelin fan....

BUT


Alexei was not the same player after Malone went crazy like a postal worker crackhead on him...\


I'm very happy he is staying in the NHL

Agreed. I think this kid has some untapped offensive potential.

Good! Shows that he wasn't intimidated by the NHL at all.

Still waiting on terms, but should be reasonable.

Also, Contrary to what most believe, I think it'll be 2 year, 4.5 million. His stock rose once he won the World Championships this summer with Russia. None the less, anything under 2.5 mil a year would be good bang for your buck.

This guy will be even more of a beast playing under Therrien, who likes toughness and physical play.

Emelin yes, Eller not so much.

A 22 year old center who scores 16 goals without PP time is such a bust.

Isn't it still an entry-level contract?

No. He signed his entry level deal last season. It expired.
