Eminger played 4 minutes last game. The #6 defenseman on this Rangers team so far this season is so irrelevant, we could be starting Jason Strudwick, as is, and it wouldn't even make a difference.
If it was a more progressive discussion like say, wow, I'm not happy Bickel is in the lineup, Sather really needs to explore improving the teams defensive depth, then I would understand. Pick your poison with Bickel and Eminger, because regardless of who gets the nod, they're going to play less than 5 minutes.
Might finally be time to see what Gilroy can do at the NHL level (again).
I agree with this post but I dont think Gilroy is a better answer. He really just seems clueless in the defensive zone, he is so easily pushed off the puck. At this point to me I do think that Eminger belongs in the lineup, I feel he really isn't bad as a number 6 option.
The bottom line is Gilroy and Bickel are NOT the kind of players you can have in your lineup every day
