Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
granted... however, i would probably look for a goalie that is undisputed and entrenched in the starting position. gerber is hot but if he ever falters, which he will, he has the likes of emery at his heels. emery's work ethic during practice may be shaky, but come game time- he's an elite goalie that is ottawa's future- he won't sit for too long.
Coach Paddock unhappy with Emery
Ray Emery - G - OTT - Nov. 8 - 10:52 a.m. ET
Coach John Paddock is unhappy with Ray Emery's work ethic in practice.
The coach has decided to start Emery in Thursday's game against the Capitals, but wants him to practice harder in order to take his game to another level. Paddock coached Emery for a few seasons in the AHL and saw the same thing then - a talented player with questionable practice habits. Unfortunately for Emery, Martin Gerber is as hot as a pistol at the moment and is also one of the hardest working players on the team. However, that will be moot if Emery can regain his form of last season.
