Eminger might be useful for the next game and maybe just have Bickel sit and regroup..but honestly, I'd rather see Eminger or Bickel out there in place of Stralman, holy sweet lord talk about giving Ovie an absolute gift.
stralman has been great offensively and his defense isn't THAT bad. i don't think i'd want to see anybody that we have as extras replace him. he's invaluable on the pp and continues to improve in both ends.
