After being the goaltender of record by default with Hasek’s injury in 2006, Emery competed with new #1 Martin Gerber during the 2006-07 season, eventually supplanting Gerber to help the Senators get to the Stanley Cup finals in 2007.  However, off-ice antics and constant scrutiny of his behavior led to a parting of the ways.

THE BREAK-UP:  The Senators bought Emery out one year after making the Finals, paying him 1/3 of the remaining $6.75M over the next 4 years.

AFTER THE SENS:  Emery went on a whirlwind tour.  He went to the KHL, Philly, Anaheim, and finally getting a cup in Chicago before signing on in Philadelphia next season.
