Cheap pick up. Emelin is a bit over-payed, but as a #5 Dman, really solid!

Vegas wins. NSH gives a third for a guy who will be left on the third pairing, he's overpaid as well. VGK got a steal in this one.

I like this for Vegas just to dump his hefty contract... I don't think Nashville is better with him over Irwin/Weber... Even if they are he is pretty pricey for a guy likely to be a 3rd pair... Either way I don't think his production will match his pricetag... They didn't lose because they lacked Emelin, now if they can shed Stoner's contract or some others that will be good smile. Shows Vegas made some bad moves/picks to not be a factor at all on the first day of free agency other than ditching this guy for a 3rd round pick they will probably botch anyway smile.
