Unlike when Sauer was healthy earlier in the year, there isn't a pair that you would put Eminger on where he wouldn't be with a stronger D. When he comes back, I wouldn't be surprised to see him getting 15-18 minutes a night, which is 9-10 more than Bickel gets, which is 9-10 more minutes of rest you can spread out among the top 4. (being McDonagh, Girardi, Staal and DelZotto)
Hes definitely not gonna be getting more than 15 and I would be surprised if he got that much. He was getting around 13 before he got hurt and thats probably what he'll get when he comes back.
