Emdogovich

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Plugov?

 

 

Honestly it's nice he's getting to play somewhere, and even better it won't be with the Wings.  Sounds harsh but he clearly didn't have a future with the team.  I'd rather they call up someone with the potential of making the lineup rather than use a player purely for spackle.

Any chance Emmerton can take Joakim Andersson along with him?

A player I'll never be able to commit to memory.  Already forgetting what it was like to have him our team.  Just made no impact.

Why would they need two first line centres?

During the Olympics, one of the russian former wings (I think it was Larionov) was talking about how he wanted to bring a team to Sochi. I guess he succeeded. Since it's a new team I assume it will be starved for players. Emmerton could actually be a "top" player for them. Anyway, he'll get to enjoy the beach life and Emdog can pick up a few stray dogs.

This was my first thought.
