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.

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.

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.

Thanks, my sides hurt after that one. :D

Somewhere The Axe is trying to figure out how to say Emdog in Russian.

This was my first thought.

Emпес?

The simplest correct way would be Emdogov (Эмдогов) :) Sounds very strange in russian though.

Personally, I think it's great that fringe NHLers don't necessarily have to be remembered as, well, fringe NHLers. We take for granted how good the Cory Emmertons of the world actually are.

I was hoping you'd chime in, Rus! :lol:

I cant believe that he was the wings' top pick that year. Pathetic

2nd round. 41st overall. I cringe looking at some of the names that got picked "right afterwards," but at the time Emmerton was in the top ten of central scouting's NA skaters and not the only one in those top ten that didn't make much of a dent in the NHL.

Thats odd. I didnt know being invisible 95% of the time was good?

You can do that with any draft from any team in any given year. When you're trying to project where an 18 year old kid is going to end up 5 years later, it's a crap shoot, even in the top 5 overall.
