If he can return at 100%, I'm fine with 4.1 M$ per. I would have been happy with less money but he's good and useful to us. It is almost Gorges money and I'm sure that next year, there will be no doubt that Emelin is the best of the two.
Emelin was our third best defencemen last season, he does not only destroy the body and souls of other players he also plays a solid stay at home game. He's worth his money, we were hoping for a discount but we got him for his actual value. That's going to be about 20M$ on our top-4 though. 12m$ for Markov, Emelin, Gorges andnthen between 6m$ to 8m$ for Pikou.
