I didn't get to watch the game last night, but I saw the play Kronwall made to help get Eaves off the ice. I've never seen that before. What are your thoughts on the play?

Tell you the truth, I couldn't even comprehend what was going on when I first saw it, though I had seen Eaves take the shot off the leg.

I still think it was kind of a strange play.

I would like to hear what Eaves has to say about it. ;)

Eaves couldnt even get up. Although it didnt help him much it was cool to see. Good team work.

The refs could have blown the damn whistle though. He was obv in a lot of pain and the puck was out of the zone.

Dumb play by Kronwall.

If Eaves was legitimately hurt there (as in torn ACL or something), then you can't have him risk trying to move too quickly. Like when they tell people at accident scenes to not move the injured party, for risk of worsening the injury.

On the bright side, it's the first time Kronwall has done anything aggressive this season.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

It could have made whatever injury eaves had worse. However, as far as the game is concerned, it was awesome.

im assuming they wanted the refs to blow the whistle due to what could have been a broken leg...and since the refs were crappy last night they didnt.

Eaves looked like he wasn't too happy when he looked at Kronner. I do think the refs should have blown the whistle and stopped play.

Agreed. The Wings had cleared the zone so there was no immediate scoring chance for the Preds, and with Eaves clearly injured, the refs likely would've (or should've anyway) blown the whistle.

How would a torn ACL be affected by what Kronner did? If he had a broken bone, maybe. A spinal or head injury, yes. But Eaves never left the bench. For all we know, he was yelling "effing charlie horse", in which case, shovel him to the bench. I guess I just like tough hockey and you'd prefer to pussify it. ;)

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

seen this done before, still hilarious though. i dont really see where anybody couldve thought this injury was more than a broken/bruised foot. it was clearly a shot to the ankle/foot. to me it looked like eaves was laughing when he looked at kronwall, which is very typical for him.

Didn't seem like laughing to me, more like "what's happening, who's pushing me?" Eaves expression was very painful when he finally got to sit down on the bench.

I think what Kronwall did was fine. He realized that the refs ain't going to blow the whistle so helping Eaves to the bench allowed him to get medical attendance quicker and also the team to get new player on the ice for the PK.

Honestly I'm not sure if this was an ass move by Kronwall or genuinely helpful because I've never seen it before. Eaves didn't look too happy.

Funny, nonetheless.

For those saying it was dumb I guarantee you that if they asked Eaves he would be happy Kronwall did it... Kronwall knew he blocked a shot and a hockey player doesn't mind some pain for the benefit of the team. That would have been a 5 on 3 basically with Eaves not able to stand up laying right in the middle to get rocked by another shot. These guys are NHL'rs they know the Ref's wont blow the whistle and Kronwall knew that it wasn't a torn act or anything from a blocked shot. Yes it probably caught Eaves by surprise but I bet for a fact and I know I would want the same as a hockey player is to get me off the ice cause I wouldn't want to be responsible for a goal against. Great sacrifice by Eaves to block the shot, and heads up play by Kronwall and Eaves to get him off the ice.
