What's not to like about Emelin? Do you not like talent? Or physicality? Bring back Stephane Quintal!
Everyone has an opinion, i am not sure how you even make a good assessment of a rookie d-man after this short a stint, especially when d-man generally take a while to progress, like Gorges did.
But I think he is all that he was advertised to be and has really impressed many and i would be playing him every game, playing 3 soft offensive d-men like Diaz, Campoli and Kaberle seems like 1 too many. And Diaz is not the one i would be sitting, but maybe Campoli will improve??
Cunnyworth is sitting Yemelihn for a reason and i guess having too many d-men is a good problem to have.
But Weber will likely be gone in new year and hopefully they can get a 2nd round pick for him, or package him with Cammalleri.
Habs generally do well vs the Blackhawks and be nice to see Randy get his first win.
