Eminger would play both sides, although, if I recall correctly, people wanted him off the team here during that 3 month period. Play and play well are different outcomes.

Look, NHL is different than pee-wee team I used to coach, they apparently have defensemen able to play off side with no problem. Yet it must be something new, if I just missed it. As such it may be good to go to basics, i.e. play strong side. That is what Rangers do. It is not incidental.
