Sweet, good attitude. That's just good drafting. Tell me again why this guy was passed up on so much? Was it his size or something? He's big enough, as far as I'm concerned.

He had a bad year injury-wise, only played 40 games, in his draft year (2005/2006) so he slipped out of the 1st round, Detroit traded down to nab him and Shawn Matthias in the 2nd round.

Is Emmerton eligible to play for GR this year? I hope so. But if not, I'm sure he'll tear up the OHL this year.

No, he played a full season that year. It was the year after he was drafted that he got hurt and missed the final third of the season.

I can't WAIT to see how Emmerton does in GR. He and Mursak are both going to break onto the AHL scene this year and it should be interesting. Holland's praising his two-way play - sounds exactly like the Wings' sort of player.

So then I still have no idea why we was drafted in the 2nd round. I read it somewhere...

He's started this camp off well, getting 2+1 against the NYR prospects. Plus he wears my # so he should be good!!
