Steve Eminger?

Anyone have any updates on him?

He's good enough to at least get a 1 year, 1-way contract.

Apparently he isn't.

Signed,
All 5 teams he's played for in the last 16 months.

I can't believe Noah Welch got a job before him.

5? I only count 4... who am I missing?

(Would it be trollish to throw in a good-natured "thanks for Carlson"? )

He's definitely good enough to get a 1 way, and I'll be shocked if he doesn't. It'd be hard to imagine nobody wanting him even as a 7th-8th d-man. He's probably still trying to wait it out and trying to get 1.5, which is what he's worth. But he won't get it this summer. I still think if none of Kulikov/Ellerby/Garrison show they're ready to step up in camp, then we'll probably sign Eminger if he's still around.

He wasn't "really good" but he didn't stink up the joint like Marek Malik.

I'm not as peeved about the first round pick as I am the fact that it became John Carlson, who was there for the taking. But, no, the Flyers elected to acquire Steve freakin' Eminger instead as a cure-all to our defensive woes. Give me a ****ing break. I'm sure GMGM couldn't hang up the phone fast enough before howling with delight at the prospect of unloading Eminger AND getting a first round pick in the process. As a Flyers fan who really wanted the team to draft Carlson, this myopic trade by Homer still angers me to no end and will only continue to do so as Carlson develops into a top-4 NHL defenseman -- for a conference rival, to boot.

Eminger will make a good bench warmer for any of the 26 other NHL teams he hasn't tormented. Then again, he will probably drop the water bottle many times during a game.

Not sure if you are being sarcastic here or not, but the flyers dealt Sbisa in the Pronger deal.

Just look at it this way - if you had taken Carlson, you would have had to trade him to get Pronger (apparently that was the "must have" player when the Caps inquired a second time about him, IINM).

ughh you touched on a sore spot with me haha.

It was Eminger and a 3rd for the 1st. So the Flyers traded down 2 rounds in order to get Eminger. That 3rd turned into either Bourdon or Deserres I believe.

People always forget that part of the deal which makes it not nearly as bad (albeit probably still regrettable.)
