Post-game Eminger article in the Washington Times:
Quote:

http://washingtontimes.com/weblogs/i...steve-eminger/

Steve Eminger had his first chance to show the Washington Capitals they were wrong for giving up on him tonight, and he made good on it. Eminger had an assist on the game-winning goal and nearly had two tallies of his own in a 2-1 win for his Philadelphia Flyers against the Caps.

"[It was] preseason, but I felt like I was pretty jacked up for the game," Eminger said. "I wanted to make a good impression, and I wanted to win."

Eminger logged 22:06 of ice time, which was third among Flyers defensemen behind Braydon Coburn and Kimmo Timonen. He saw significant time on both the power play (his assist, a perfect diagonal pass to Joffrey Lupul came with the extra man) and the PK.

"I am pretty happy with getting to play special teams," Eminger said. "When you get a chance you just have to take advantage of it. You canít just relax on it; youíve got to do something. I donít know what is going to happen during the season, but when I am out there I just want to take advantage."

Eminger, who is now wearing No. 26, even got into a couple of shoving matches with his former mates. Well, one was with Jay Beagle, but he also got in a pretty good shot on Alexander Semin near the end of a play.
I started a thread regarding Downie's injury. Knee, termed "not serious" and out maybe two weeks. MRI to come.

I have high hopes for Eminger. He will run Jones out of a Spot.

He looked good, speed is there timing is still off. He needs to practice on his shot more.. Richards will pass that puck on PK like he did yesterday and imo Gagne must lead the league in SH goals.

The relevant portion from our other beat-writer's postgame column:

*Eminger was the surprise of the game for me. He couldn't crack the Caps' lineup, but he looked awfully good out there for the Flyers. He earned the third star and made a beautiful cross-ice, setup pass on Lupul's power play goal. I've said it before and I'll say it again: the Caps are going to end up regretting that trade.

Eminger said he missed three games with a hip strain, but he's healthy now and says he might start the season in the Flyers' top-4.

"I was pretty jacked up for the game," Eminger said. "I wanted to make a good impression and I wanted to win."

Grant McNeill took on Flyers' tough guy Riley Cote, although in retrospect McNeill probably wishes he hadn't. Cote made quick work of McNeill, a defenseman dressed a forward just in case Cote got a little frisky tonight. In the dressing room afterward, McNeill wasn't a pretty sight. His left eye was completely swollen shut.

I just wish Cote fought Erskine That jack ass sucker punched Gagne in the head. I guy who missed all season because of concussion.

I think it will. Eminger is a far better player than people give him credit for

I don't know if "regret" is the right word. For some reason, whether due to desire or other mental issues, he just couldn't and wouldn't put it all together in Washington. At a certain point, it's not the player's or organization's fault - a change of scenery is the only remedy for the situation.

Homer saw something in him, he paid a high price for a once prized player who has not been a bust, but has come no where near his potential and had a very weak year last year.

Eminger will not be the greatest defensive player of all time, but he will definitely help with our breakouts and clearing teh puck. he also gives us options on PP unit #2 with him, jones and coburn all vying for a spot at teh point.

He also provides good depth should timmonen miss time. He is no where near timmonen defensively but he will help to make up for his offense if anything were to happen to him

I am much more comfortable with our D-depth this year. We have plenty of guys who can and want to play on this team. We have timmonen, coburn, jones, vananen, eminger, kukkonen, parent, berard, sbisa, syvert, and guenin all capable of playing at least a small role or limited action this year, although sbisa will probally go back to juniors.
