If those two were in Philly lineup now, would they push any of those three to the press box? Would they slot into second pairing , third pairing. or would they themselves be sitting?
Lemme start the speculation: Eminger is not that good and at best he would compete with O'Donnell for the 6th spot?
Eminger isn't playing badly for the Rangers now, but whether we'd use him over O'D at #6 is hard to say. Sbisa would still be in Jr, or with the Phantoms. Neither one is as good as Carle, Meszaros or Coburn right now. Sbisa may be some day, but he's still too green.
They gambled on Eminger realizing his full potential as a puck carrying Dman. He hasn't.
