Whether it's a saturated market for 6th/7th d-men or not, you cannot argue that Eminger is barely an NHL caliber player. Sure, he's good to have as a 7th d-man. I'm not advocating against the signing at the right price, but let's not try and sell him as this ultra reliable, ultra consistent guy that we're not going to be cursing out some nights.

Would it really make much of a difference if we substituted Mara or Sopel in Eminger's place? Steve Montador? Freddy Meyer? Craig Rivet?
