Sather Continues Summer Of Excellence, Re-signs EmingerJuly 25, 2011, by
According to the internet (sources are overrated), the Rangers have resigned Steve Eminger to a one year deal worth $800K (this figure has yet to be confirmed). Last season Eminger played in 65 games registering 2 goals and 4 assists. More importantly, the 6-2 203-pounder brought some much needed physicality to the Rangers crease.
This season Eminger will most likely play the right side on the bottom pairing with either Michael Del Zotto or Tim Erixon. Should both young defensemen be ready for full-time duty, Eminger will be in the press box. For only $800K, it’s hard to see any negatives with this deal.
Should this cap figure prove accurate, the Rangers have about $4 million left under the cap to sign Ryan Callahan – this scenario includes both MDZ and MZA (cap geek.com). Since the Rangers are going to want some wiggle room, you gotta figure the Rangers will trade a forward, buyout Wolski, or demote Erik Christensen.
