From Detroit Sports Nation on Facebook -

"Apparently the decision has come down to Eaves or Maltby in deciding who the last player to be waived is. That would be really a tough break for Eaves, who hurt his foot and didn't get a chance to earn a spot while Maltby got into a lot of game action ^RB"

"George Malik of Kukla's Korner is reporting via Fox Sports Detroit that Patrick Eaves could be hitting the waiver wire next ^RB"



If this happens, I very well may just scream.

"Could Eaves be put on waivers?"

Technically, Zetterberg and Datsyuk 'could' be put on waivers too. There's no restrictions to who can't be placed on waivers. I think Eaves chances of being placed on waivers is about equal to Modano's chances to being placed on waivers... Zero percent chance.

Damn, I was really looking forward to Abby, Helm and Eaves on the 4th this year.

I hope this is wrong!

If Eaves gets put on waivers I am never forgiving Kenny for it.

Who has a better chance of clearing waivers, Eaves or Ritola?

Eaves seems very injury prone. Not the kind of player we need, who will be worn down and not 100% when the important games come.

There is no way Eaves is exposed to waivers with the way he's played here... as I said in another thread:

Something everyone needs to realize is that Patrick Eaves wasn't a 1st round pick on accident - He needs to finish his career here. Eaves is EXACTLY the type of player we need - He can fill many roles, plays with an edge and could play on higher lines in a scoring role as well if needed.

"George Malik of Kukla's Korner is reporting via Fox Sports Detroit that Patrick Eaves could be hitting the waiver wire next ^RB"

I am going PURELY off of gut reaction and saying this is 100% speculation to create a story on a slow newsday... Eaves spot is safe and secure and I think the whole Wings organization knows that.

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

Yeah, I don't see any way they keep Malts up with the big club. I can see someone making the argument that having both Drapes & Eaves injured to start the year might make Kenny lean towards keeping Malts up, but I would think they would be comfortable with Abby-Helm-Miller as the 4th line until those two are ready.

If Eaves is waived instead of Maltby I will not be buying my 19 game season ticket package. To be honest i think we should have waived draper before Ritola.

From a hockey standpoint of course, everyone would agree.. but DRW is a special organization obviously so it's just out of question, too bad imo, he's 39, 40 in may and based on what he provides for the team on the ice at the moment he shouldn't have a roster spot.

I usually give Kenny Holland a lot of leeway in terms of roster decisions. But not this time.

I can't begin to tell you how disappointed I would be if Eaves is let go in favor of Malts.

I normally try not to get to upset about Ken Holland moves. But waiving Patrick Eaves in order to keep Kirk Maltby up as a 14th forward would be one...

I will not be happy at all if Patrick Eaves is waived.

Maltby will clear waivers, Eaves will not.

This, I think, is the biggest factor.
Malts will be waived over Eaves.

Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James
