I had a good feeling about Eaves right from the get-go. Maybe it was just the way Cleary worked out for us. I can see Eaves being a guy who works himself onto the 3rd line, even with a healthy line-up. He's RFA at the end of this season too, so I hope they choose to retain him. I can't see any reason they wouldn't. He's the exact kind of play the Wings need for the bottom 6 of their forward corps. Speed kills my friends.

Obviously he's riding the current hot streak but we've all got to admit, he's had his hand in some big plays for the Wings. I think we shoudl all be extremely happy with his play thus far

Definately. Hopefully he does turn into another Cleary as suggested.

Updated for the last 2 games. At some point this season I'd like to see him get a few shifts on one of the top lines just to see if some of his old goal scoring touch is still there.

How tall is Helm? Apparently he's 5'11 and Eaves is 6'0.

Sucked against Montreal and Florida. Didnt hit or forecheck well, he needs to learn that he isnt worth a dame unless he is doing that, we need that lineto provide energy everynight.

I always thought he had potential to be great. Every time I've ever seen him play (on any prior teams) he just looked like he didn't have anyone to click with. Now he has a few, and he's been doing damn well. I hope we keep him out of all our offseason pickups, as he was also the one I was most interested and excited for.

I don't really think of Eaves as a forechecker. To me he's just a seat filler on the 4th line who doesn't do anything particularly well. We'd have been better in the offseason of signing someone like Winchester or Crombeen to fill that same role.

At the same time, he doesn't do anything stupid out there, so maybe the Wings are happy just with that. Hence the idea of a seat filler.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Did not play against Dallas. Hopefully he's able to get back in there and bring some of that jump we've seen on most occasions this year.

Yeah slightly injured foot, should be back next game.

After a slight down period his previous one or two games had been much better.

Definately. Always good to see him doing well out there, and he really seems to enjoy himself.

Experiment: Put him with Pavs for a game or two and see what happens.
