I don't, and I've seen more than enough of both of them.

You lure them in with the possibility of winning more than a 7th d-man role considering Redden's status up in the air and the other spot most likely being filled by one of: Gilroy, McDonagh, Sauer, Valentenko.

And you then you just buy out or waive Voros. It'd still save a couple bucks if you bought him out and got someone for ~600K. And the defenseman would be better.
You do the move as a summer cap move. The Rangers get a player who could be their depth defenseman without adding much to the summer cap and without using up another open contract (actually, the Rangers got rid of two contracts). This move was as much about keeping whatever flexibility they feel like they have as it was about getting a 7th D.

Oh, and is there really THAT big of a difference between Eminger and Erickson?
