Finally! The rumors of Emery being bought out have been surfacing for months now and the deal was finally done last night. Emery will certainly not be missed by Bryan Murray. It is amazing how things can change from one June to the next. As last year, Emery was the toast of town and this year the team can’t get rid of him fast enough.
