Where is Alexei Yemelin?

What is the story with him? Do we still own him? Was it a Russian trasfer agreement problem... Any chance of him showing up this year? Surely he has the potential to offer more to the club as our 6th defensemen than the current group of potzers do.

he signed this year a contract with his club for 2 years. he'll stay there 100% for this year and we would have to pay for his transfer if HE WANTS to come over next year because we'll need him.

He's currently under contract with Lada Togliatti in the RSL till April 30, 2008. We onw his right till June 1, 2008.

He's staying in Russia this year, but maybe he will come next year

I know it's not that important but i just wanted to point out that it's Emelin and not Yemelin...

In Russian, E is pronounced Ye... for instance, Evgeni = Yevgeni

Please, get this guy over here as soon as possible. The best defensive prospect in our system, hands down.

Agreed. I was really hoping he would come over this past Summer, but oh well.

He already plays a kind of North American style game, so spending one more year in the RSL is not likely to be detrimental to his development. And I can understand him not being all that eager to jump across the pond when in Russia he's a star, and is being coached by his dad.

But I do hope he wants to come to North America, and that he'll consider getting out of his contract in 2007 to come to Habs camp, especially with the prospect of losing some combination of Souray, Rivet, and/or Markov to free agency.

I'm definately not. Montreal is, BG is as well and most of our regulars are too. Most of the people in here would be good if they had the pleasure in seeing guys for a long period of time and more importantly consecutively. That's the privilege I had at the Dev. Camp.

As far as Emelin is concerned, as strange as it may sounds and with what I've seen of him so far, I'm pretty sure that what you see is what you'll be getting as far as his offensive game is concerned. Defensively while on the smallish side, he would have been perfect....in the OLD NHL. Will need, and I do think he will, to make adjustements as far as being more disciplined, let the hooking and grabbing in Russia and play a physical but yet using his smarts to outplay the opponent, the same way Markov do. And I'm pretty sure he will as soon as he gets here!!!! Great prospect to say the least!

Hes small and you can compare him to Darius Kasparitis. Intense, play big, showed some surprising offensive abilities in the last months.

No, we wouldn't have to pay anything because there is no transfer agreement in place, so players can come over for free even when under contract, like Ovechkin.

Well that's up to him to decide. In Russian, it's probably Emeluh, so if he wants it spelled so that it is pronounced like it's written in English, then he could want it to be spelled Yaymaylinn for all we know. It's up to him to decide.

Perezhogin could ask to be spelled nepe)|(oruh if he wanted.

I don't think that's a fair statement at all. Emelin is an excellent skater and plays the positional game very well... He does take a lot of penalties and plays ultra agressive but he can excel in the new NHL.

I absolutely agree that he will excel once he makes some adjustments, the kind of adjustments that, as a forward, Perezhogin needs to make 'cause he is a great skater himself but has those hooking and grabbing tendancies that I see Emelin having especially as a d-man. What I meant is that his game right now is, while he's a good skater and good positionnaly, plays with an edge that make him take a lot of penalties that would not have been penalties in the old NHL. Once he makes the appropriate adjustments, he'll then be great.

I'm a big fan of his and I really think that part of his game is really under rated. He bring Kasparitis's physical, in your face style but makes a better first pass out of the defensive zone. When playing his best he almost reminds me of Konstantinov.

For the record....

I speak and read a bit of Russian and (just for the sake of argument) I looked up the actual Russian spelling of Alexei's name on the Lada website.

It is spelt with an "E", which can be a "ye" or a soft "e" sound, depending on where they put the stress in the word "Yemelin". For some reason I am pretty sure that because it is at the beginning of the word it will be pronounced "ye". The actual spelling of his name (phonetically) should be...

Yemeleen
