Tampa Bay has traded defenseman Steve Eminger to Florida for Noah Welch.



Tampa Bay gets: a defenseman with potential, but never really had the chance (like they had in Eminger).


Florida gets: a defenseman who has had a strong campaign, while giving up a rearguard whom they weren't using.


Fantasy players impacted: Eminger's value goes way down. He is buried in Florida's system, whereas he was a top pairing d-man in Tampa. 


Welch, on the other hand, will finally see some NHL ice time. He may be worth a flyer in deeper roto-leagues and I would think that 10 points is possible from him going forward.
