How in watching those two games Tortorella and his coaching staff could possibly think that Steve Eminger outplayed Michael Sauer. A traffic cone could have played better than Eminger and Sauer was very solid for my money in his play the first two games, taking the body, making the simple play. The argument for Eminger playing in the 1st game was that he was the best of the 3 on the left side while it was down to Gilroy and Sauer for the RD spot on the 3rd pair. If that "excuse" was actually fact, then someone is going to have to explain to me why they are reporting
Matt Gilroy in, Mike Sauer out for #NYRangers tomorrow vs. #Leafs. Gilroy will play left side and Eminger will move back to the right.
I dont know if Eminger has some sort of dirt on Tortorella and Sather or something, but the fact that can't bring themselves to put him on the bench is beyond me and not helping this club. I understand the idea of wanting some experience on the blueline because as a group there is not much, but having experience does not automatically make you qualified for the position.
Have at it.
