Erskine Activated; Nycholat, Um... Injured! Yeah, That's The Ticket

Per Tarik, "[d]efenseman John Erskine has been activated from injured reserve and will suit up for tonight's game. To make room for him, Lawrence Nycholat has been put on injured reserve for an undisclosed reason. I'm guessing there really isn't a reason, unless you count not wanting to send him through waivers as a reason."

Will the League let this fly? I guess we'll see.

As an aside, though I often nit-pick Tarik's work (fairly and otherwise), I must say that his blogging through today's roster shuffling has been fantastic - both timely and informative. We've had questions, he's gotten answers. Bravo, sir, bravo.

Nice labeling.

Also, why was Eminger a healthy scratch? Was he playing poorly? I thought he had been doing well recently...

I thought so too. I think that perhaps it's a message to Emmy (similar to the message to Green) that the team needs a little more offense out of him.

Frankly, I'm surprised the Caps didn't go with 7 defensemen, scratch Bradley and double-shift AO. I'm worried that by the third, Potsy and Erskine will be a little warn down, having not played in a while. We'll see.

I'm guessing Eminger's not healthy.
