Eminger is better than Hammer as a #7. Bickel will be the emergency call-up, though if they do extend a contract to Klassen, he might become our emergency D.

one of the best 7th defenseman in the league.

re-sign him.

As a Caps fan I'm really glad Eminger has seemingly managed to stick in the NHL.

He isn't the player we hope'd he'd be but at least he can say he's an NHLer on a playoff team. Good for him.

If you need a defenseman to sit, you want Steve Eminger!

What are you talking about? Parenteau wanted to a guaranteed 1-way contract and legitimate chance to compete for an NHL position. Rangers clearly were not in a position to promise him that. What did you want the team to do?

I know you're partially just being snarky for the sake of it, but with the way we've seen d-men go down and with the brutal 3rd pairings we've been forced to employ I don't think it's fair to act like 7th defensemen are irrelevant.

Thanks for the input everyone. I was reasonable happy with Eminger's play for the Lightning a few years back, as apparently was Rick Tocchet, who put him on the ice well over 20 minutes per game. Trading him at the deadline that year was one of our many less than stellar moves under the reign of the two idiots.

This ^ with the caveat that you want him, he's yours for a 5th maybe a 6th

McDonagh-Girardi
Del Zotto-Scuderi
Moore-Stralman

Staal(out with eye injury/traded to Carolina)
I'll be very surprised if Staal's vision isn't good enough to be back at the start of next season.

I have a hard time thinking of the last time I was upset with Eminger's play, and that's a lot more than I can say for Del Zotto or Stralman. I think you have to re-sign if he's looking for a reasonable deal.

Won't be shocked if Moore's solid play forces Del Zotto or Staal out in a trade if the value is there either.
