Not only a keeper, but a LONG term keeper... I would seriously like to see Holland sign him to at least a 4 year extension and wouldn't be mad if he went upwards of 6 or 7 years in a deal, that's how much I believe in Eaves and think he can impact this team when given the chance (as he's showing this year)

Well if he does score 20G how much do you think he would ask for?

I think he realizes that he's found a home here and is grateful that we've resurrected his career - I think he can be had long term at a hit of 2-2.5 a year or less, depending on how they structure it... and for a guy who can score 20, kill penalties and fill any of the 4 lines roles asked of him AND PP time if needed (basically any role he's asked to play) - it would be well worth it...

Anyone have any news on the injury? Losing him for any period of time would be a bigger blow than most may realize...

Red Wings forward Patrick Eaves left midway through the second period with an apparent knee or leg injury after colliding with Torrey Mitchell. Babcock said he will be re-evaluated on Wednesday.

per mlive.

Posted Image Hopefully just a bruise of some sort which may keep him out of the next game. We shall see but not good obviously as it happened on a nice finish to a check.

If he's injured, only one person in Grand Rapids who deserves the call up.

You want them to call up Jamie Tardif? Keep dreaming.....

Besides, they won't have to "call someone up" if Patty is down. I am sure Flips would just come back a game earlier than expected.

Ask anyone in the Grand Rapids organisation who deserves a call up they'll all say the same thing. Why keep dreaming? He's a Detroit Red Wings player. Nobody expected them to call up Newbury last season either and it happened.

yea, I saw that, I was hoping there might be more info today...

I agree, hopefully it's just a slight tweak or charley horse...

Ask him why he's not used on the PP more too, haha :)

orrrrr.... how about no one... Fil will be back Thurs and Modano will be back Sat, we're going to need to start worrying about who's going to be scratched again, rather than who is going to be called up...

Orrr how about you stop trying to be clever and stop assuming when players are going to return. From MLive:

Center Valtteri Filppula hopes to return Thursday or -- more likely -- on Saturday.

Can't play a game with 11 forwards.

orrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, how about you stop assuming that a "more likely" means a certainty?

and as a matter of fact, actually, you can play a game with 11 forwards and they could dress 7 dmen... they did it last year... I'm not saying that is what they WILL do, but it can and has been done... and regardless, I'd put my money on Flip playing Thur over them making a call up...

I guess we'll see Thur.

And that other forward, if needed, is going to be someone who has a future with the team like Mursak. :D

Why? There's every chance there will be a call up. Why not discuss who deserves the chance?

Its a discussion forum, you know?

I never said to not discuss it and don't know where you're getting that from in the first place... I just stated that I don't think a call up is likely. period.

With that said, IF there were a call up, I agree with everyone else, it will be Mursak and if not Mursak, Emmerton...

You never know. I refer to Newbury again. He got the call because he was on a huge scoring run in the weeks before his call up. In a same way Jamie Tardif is now.

Back then, everyone expected Ritola or Emmerton to be called up but Holland surprised us all. Who's to say he won't again?

DETROIT -- Detroit Red Wings forward Patrick Eaves will have an MRI today to determine the extent of his knee/leg injury, general manager Ken Holland said.

Eaves was hurt midway through the second period of Tuesday's 4-3 loss to San Jose, when he delivered a check on Torrey Mitchell and their knees collided.

If Eaves is out for Thursday's game against Dallas, the Red Wings will need to recall a forward from the Grand Rapids Griffins (likely Jan Mursak), unless Valtteri Filppula is ready to play. He's been out since Feb. 7 with a sprained knee but said he expects to return either Thursday or Saturday.
