I agree. Plus, Emelin was a playmaker on the PP back on the AK Bars squad.

I don't find being dirty entertaining, but it seems to be a minotity who think so.

His hard clean hits are very entertaining as it is, to me.

He got elbowed in the face in the KHL during the lockout, and getting hit by a puck in training camp probably didn't help. I've heard Stubbs and Godin say he will wear it for a few weeks.

For a "power forward" Kane looks awful skinny. Looks like about 6'2" 175lbs, needs more meat on those bones.

But he was also a lunatic who played dirty. Then he came over here, took a defensive role and hits cleanly only.

Not sure if this post is serious.

You make it sound like he retired from a life of crime, and cannot possibly go back to playing offensively?

Looking at how he hit, how he skate and how he play offensively he has a similar style than Vladimir Konstantinov ! Hey, I'm not saying he is as good as him, but one can dream

No I meant that when he came over, he has adapted to a new style both physically and position-wise. Now he's getting more comfortable in that role.

This man has got to play on the LEFT side. It looks as though his big hitting ability disappears when he's slotted on the right.

I would hope the coaching staff would eventually try
Markov - Gorges
Emelin - Subban
Bouillon - Diaz

I find he's making a lot more positioning mistakes in his own zone this year too. Could be a reason why.

While you are both right, I think it has more to do with the quality of the competition being faced. He's been paired up against the best this season and he simply isn't the same caliber of D-man as Gorges, Subban or Markov.

Emelin should play on his natural left side, except ultimately I truly believe if this team is to have any success it needs to re-unite Gorges-Subban. Perhaps the pairing you posted would work, but I still think Subban is the Habs best ES/PK defender and needs to face the toughest assignments.

He's still dishing out big hits, but no one seems to be putting them on youtube,

He's still hitting a lot, but he's going for effective hits over highlight reel ones.

I'm more concerned that he's been playing terrible for the past two games, probably our worst defenseman, though Diaz is keeping it close.

He's still throwing the odd highlight reel hit.

His hit on Kadri doesn't appear to be on youtube...

He'd look a lot better if Gorges/Subban were together facing other top lines instead of him and Markov. He's being forced to play tough minutes when he shouldn't right now, hopefully Therrien figures his **** out soon and puts Gorges and Subban together.

Agreed, Markov and Emelin make a great second pairing, but they've been outmatched since Markov started tiring.

So is Emelin a long-term top 4 for this organisation or does he get pushed down when the youngsters ( Beaulieu, Tinordi et al ) become staples?

Please stop.

It is tiring that we need to constantly turn from one player to the next in an effort to bash them or pit them against another. And now Emelin is pitted against DMen in the AHL.
