A few weeks ago, we looked at the Anaheim Ducks defense, post-Pronger. With the signing of Steve Eminger, who played on three teams in 2008-9, here’s what the updated defensive roster looks like:
Anaheim Ducks’ defensemen, Regular season 2008-9
At Even Strength, the 25 year old journeyman (!) was the epitome of a league average defenseman by ESTR. He can fill a useful role for the Ducks if he does not displace better performers or get in the way of young Sbisa developing. It’s Ryan Whitney who has been a flop anywhere he’s gone, who should be shipped out if Anaheim can find any takers.
“Suitcase” Steve Eminger? Now that Mike Sillinger is retired, Eminger may take on the monicker based on 5 teams -Washington, Philadelphia, Tampa Bay, Florida, Anaheim- in a little over a year. Sheesh!
