Interesting that he was invited to the KHL all-star game. We know that he has been good there previously, but hopefully this bodes well for us and speaks to his continuing maturation.

We all love a guy that hits like a truck, hopefully he can maintain that vicious streak while also learning how to pick his spots. Also, if he could bring back any of his KHL scoring touch to the NHL, that would be pure icing on the cake!

Emelin isn't horrible on D. Despite getting off to a slow start last year, there was a big improvement by the end of the season.

Don't know if I'd put him with PK, since PK is such a freewheeler. PK is all over the ice, drives the rush, plays in the offence zone and comes back. Emelin will give him that support on the back end so he can help with the offense. Although not too sure he's ready for 1st line duties.

Working with Markov should do wonders for his game. Marky did a lot for Komi and his game, so much that Komi thought he was better than he actually was. Reality hit him like an 18 wheeler once he signed his 4.5 mil contract with Toronto. Komi had a hard time adjusting to the game without Makry as his linemate.

I remember his first season, there was a shot of him sitting on the bench. He had a black eye and swollen lip, his face was a mess.
