It's hard to gauge as fans how well a player like Eminger was playing. A lot of little things done wrong, bad breakout passes that may not cost us but add up to a lot of turnovers, other chances, etc...Not clearing the zone when he should be able to, etc. I feel like all you see from a 3rd pair guy that plays 8 minutes is whether or not he's on the ice for a noticable amount of goals and whether or not he's scoring. If Eminger isn't posting points, you simply write it off as it not being his style, that he's defensive minded.

It should be telling that Gilroy played over him down the stretch and the playoffs, and clearly management and the coaching staff didn't think that highly of him, either.
