Detroit Red Wings forward Patrick Eaves didn't practice Saturday due to an arm injury sustained in the last round against Phoenix. The club thinks he'll play Sunday in Game 2 vs. San Jose (8 p.m., Versus exclusive), but it's not definite.

Ugh...Williams to replace him if he can't play? Not good.

Well, on the optimistic side, maybe Williams is so pissed at himself that he'll come back ready to kill. Then again, it's Williams. Hope Eaves comes back soon...I like that guy.

I was about to say that. Maybe it'll light a fire up Williams' ass.

But that would explain why Eaves hasn't been anything special in the playoffs. Barely noticeable.

Yeah, Eaves has been invisible in these playoffs.

He was much better in the regular season, but that's probably because we had many injuries and more was expected from him.

That line is the same way. Eaves/Helm/Draper was good for us at one time, but it's been forever since they've done anything out there that produced a goal.

I doubt Williams will be an improvement, though, especially against a physical San Jose team.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I'd rather put Mursak in there than Williams. Mursak is really fast, doesn't mind getting his nose dirty and has great hands.

How about Brad May?

He'll come out fired up for a game like this. He'll also give us some needed physicality against a bigger Sharks team.

I say he plays before Williams or anyone else does?

Call me crazy but i think Williams might be productive, i mean he can't do much worse then Eaves was doing. Then again, once he's on the ice i'll realize why he sucks so bad.

Please no Williams. Please no Williams. If he does get in he'll have like one decent-good game and then disappear.

They've generously given him many opportunities for like the past 8 years and it's the same story every time. He starts out decent, gets a point or two, but eventually falls into a pattern where he floats around and loses seemingly every single battle for the puck.

I would like it if he could get a point or two tomorrow, and then we can put Eaves back in for game 3. :thumbup:

sharks are bigger but no way they are tougher than Phoenix. In fact, sharks allow us to play our puck possession game. This is the biggest positive thing I see now. Williams disappears against hard checking teams. I think he could be good against SJS.
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!
