its difficult for me to comment on him as i've only seen a couple of games and from what I've read on the boards he has played well compared to others. just wondering if the stats reflect bad play or misfortune
The last 2 games were pretty rough for the Eminer/Erixon pairing. -4 combined against TOR and OTT. Of course, Anisimov was DIRECTLY responsible for (2) of those goals against Toronto, so the stats don't tell the whole story.
We'll see how Eminger does without Erixon now. Woywitka a better defensive player than Erixon and I think he might be a better fit as Eminger's partner.
I've only seen a couple games this season and have barely noticed him. Seeing as he is at -7 with no points, will he last? What is providing that Tim Erixon wasn't?
The organization felt Erixon needed some time in the AHL to get his feet under him and play a lot of minutes in all situations. He looked okay in the games he played but he was still a little tentative.
No need to rush him. They did the same thing with McDonagh.
