Ray Emery was one of only two offseason moves by Stan Bowman that paid off. Emery was a great back up and a decent starter for parts of the season. It was no secret that Corey Crawford was a major disappointment this year and Emery was able to pick up the slack when needed. His numbers were much better than I expected going into the year. They were very good considering Emery had to fight off Alexander Salak for the back up job in training camp. I sure wasn’t hoping to see Razor start 27 games this year, but he was solid when he was called upon. His play got him a one year contract extension, so he will be Crow’s back up again next year. Hopefully he doesn’t have to start as many games but I am not holding my breath. Emery is slow going from post to post and does get out of position a bit, but as far a #2 goalies go, you could do a lot worse.
