Rangers Re-Sign Steve Eminger

Posted at 04:49 PM

Eminger's deal is for one year at $750,000. 

The re-signing of Eminger does two things:

1) With head coach John Tortorella stating yesterday that Michael Sauer (concussion) is still a long way from fully recovering to the point where he would be able to rejoin the lineup, Eminger fills that spot for the time being. Remember, at times during the 2011-12 season, Eminger was fulfilling a top-four role on the Rangers' blue-line, so he can be a very serviceable player when need be. 

2) Pressure is now put on restricted free agent Michael Del Zotto, who is still without a contract for next season (whenever that may be). Not only are Eminger and Del Zotto friends, but they also share an agent. This may be the determining factor for Del Zotto to come around and accept what's being thrown his way, or as GM Glen Sather put it, "come to his senses."'
