I don't buy the argument that the staff is using regular season games to try to decide which defenseman, Gilroy or Eminger, is worse while our defense continues to get shredded. If they thought Sauer was better he would be in the game.
Eh, I think Tortorella has pretty much said that's exactly what's going on. Something to the effect of needing to see what Eminger does in his proper position before before making the decision and Gilroy being "good enough" in camp to get on the ice despite not having a need for his services at the moment.
