If there aren't many players left in free agency that I would sign, or that Sather would sign, doesn't that tell you something about Eminger and whether or not he is barely an NHL caliber defenseman? What makes Eminger any different than Sopel, Nick Boynton, Paul Mara, etc.?
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?
