He is capable at the position but they surely they can improve on Steve Eminger They could go younger or sign somebody who is a vet and who at one time logged a lot of ice time in a top four situation that now can be had for 1 million or less.
He was signed to be a solid 7th defenseman. He knows the system and excels in it. He has played his best hockey under Torts and in blue.

Honestly if you have a problem with having an NHL experienced 7th defenseman that excels in our defensive system then there is something off in your head.. no offense
