Rumor: Rangers Close To Re-signing Steve Eminger

Larry Brooks of the New York Post tweets that the New York Rangers are close to re-signing Steve Eminger.  Eminger played very well at times during his first season with the Rangers, but just as importantly showed that he can handle being a healthy scratch for periods of time and still be ready to help the team when he is needed.  I called for this move just over a month ago as Eminger is an ideal insurance policy for the Rangers young defense as he can play on the third pair if someone is not ready, struggles or gets injured while sitting if he is not needed.
