Eaves is a real good player, desperately hoping we re-sign him.

He's putting up points at a very decent clip, I'd love for him to get a shot with Datsyuk.

Guess what? His +8 rating is leading the team, 2 clear of the next best (Lidstrom). thumbup.gif

This.

Also, he should have gone in the shootout rather than Leino.

While I'm not ready to declare him a success yet, I do think he's done very, very well with the hand he's been dealt this season:

...So Far: 18gp 2g 6a 8pts +8
On Pace: 72gp 8g 24a 32pts +8

That would be tied for his best career pts total in the NHL, but would be behind his two best seasons for goals scored.

Still, if Eaves can put 30+ pts up as a 3rd/4th liner I'd say he can be very happy with this season.

Yeah, my dad was complaining about that. Eaves earned it.

It's all Drapes. If there line stays together and healty, Drapes scores 20 this year. Calling that s***.

Eaves has been good as well, that line is great.

Agreed. I very happy we signed him, all the "Project Cleary" comparisons are starting to seem very legit. I hope he keeps this up and Ken Holland re-signs him.

16:41 ice time, I don't have game by game statistics on me but that would surely be right up there with the most minutes he's played this season. Another strong game tonight.

Liking his play, and the cage is hilarious. Really hoping he sticks around past this season.

Also his league-minimum salary is quite nice!

It is imperative that Holland keeps Draper/Helm/Eaves together beyond this season. They are playing amazing hockey at both ends of the rink and given a bit more time could develop into a consistent secondary scoring threat every night.

Helm-Draper-Eaves isn't a third line. It's scoring line B. These guys are great together and they totally rejuvinated Draper. Amazing.

Too bad LGW won't be very happy... Hudler already proved that a third liner scoring 60 points a season will be irrationally hated and deamed useless.

No I didn't like Hudler because he was a soft Euro. Get it right.
