Point. What did Emelin did so bad? He played pretty good, didn't do any big mistakes. Certainly a fixture to develop.
Well, he looked so good in the first scrimmage, people/press got very high on him.
People were waiting for "the savior" who would crash Lucic in the board and challenge Chara while scoring awesome goals on the PP... we're seeing just a good D who's learning the north american game. Some see it as a disappointment. I can understand that.
