Again, it all comes back to letting the kid play his way onto the roster. Let him force you to keep him around. No more of this "Oh, plug the hole with a kid who should be ready" stuff. We saw it this year with Kreider and Miller and nothing positive came from it.
Eminger has proven he can be a solid #6. That is why I said I would bring him back. Stralman has been playing top-4 most of the season and he has been fine. He and Staal also compliment eachother well and have played well together in the past.
