Pick 'Em (Now With 20/20 Hindsight!): Mo Or Emmy

New, comments

I think it's fair to say that when the Caps traded Steve Eminger to the Philadelphia Flyers at last year's draft and subsequently used the pick acquired in the deal to snag John Carlson, it was hailed as a good (and potentially great) move by GMGM.

I think it's also fair to say that when an arbitrator awarded Shaone Morrisonn a one-year, $1.9 million contract later in the summer, many folks were surprised (and outside of Mo and his agent, not pleasantly so).

Since then, Emmy has been traded again (to Tampa Basement) and Mo has played a bit below expectations (though he has bounced around from blueline partner to partner, and playing with Mike Green and Sean Collins are two vastly different experiences).

The question, then, is knowing what you know now, who would you rather have right now - Mo or Emmy?

Here are some numbers:


GP G A P +/- PIM PPG SHG GWG GTG SOG PCT
Shaone Morrisonn 38 1 3 4 -2 32 0 0 1 0 22 4.5

Steve Eminger 45 4 14 18 3 32 2 0 0 1 56 7.1

And some more:

And perhaps the most important number of all:
