My stepson Denis in St. Petersburg, Russia follows hockey as much as anyone, and so I asked him how he felt about Alexei Yemelin, who is expected to join the Habs blueline corps and become a force to be reckoned with. Denis’ English isn’t exactly perfect, but here’s his reply verbatim. Thanks, Denis.
“He is one of my favourite players of a national team (He is and Radulov too)!
He is really gooooooood!!!”
“Very important advantage is ability to score important goals!
Very well-aimed and power slap shot.
He is well connected in attack.
Sees game, plays at a command.”
