This was my first thought.

 

Emпес?

 

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


Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

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.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

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.


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!

Remember when the KHL was viewed as a threat to sign top tier NHL FA's?  Now it's become professional hockey's version of Japanese baseball.   Cory-san?

He's a good hockey player. He's just not much more than a fourth-liner in the NHL. Which, from our perspective, makes him worthless, because he's not going to help our team. But if he can be more valuable to a KHL team (and make way more money), more power to him.


Don't Toews me, bro!

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.

 

I don't think I've ever heard a player referred to as being for spackle. I like that. I'm going to use that one in the future.

Gas stations between Detroit and Grand Rapids along I-96 will miss him most of all.

If you told me a year ago that Emmerton would be playing in Sochi in 2014, I probably wouldn't have believed you.

Hope Siberia can appreciate his unique talents.  

Sochi Leopards? That's as far from Siberia as you can get and still be in Russia. Geography, it's not just for kids anymore. :0

Yeah calling Sochi, Siberia would be like calling Los Angeles part of New England. Or in Canada referring to Victoria BC as part of the Maritimes.
