With only what...two and a half months in the season left, and with a concussion, anyone else think he's done for the year? Maybe he'll be back in time for playoffs, but probably not before. Based on them not being optimistic, and with there only being a short time left and all.

even if he is back for the playoffs, i doubt babcock plays him much, if at all, since he missed so much time.

i think this steps up management's chase for a big winger.

Get well, Sunshine. :yowza: We miss you. :(

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

This really bums me out. He's one of our better PK guys, and one of only a few forwards on the team that Babs doesn't have to beg to shoot the puck on net. Hopefully Patty gets it together before the playoffs roll around.

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Disappointing news. I really like Eaves and what he brings to the team. Best PK shot-blocker for the Red Wings and probably second best penalty killer overall after Helm.

Seems like Eaves might be done for the year. Even if he hopefully gets healthy enough to skate, it's going to take some serious time to get his conditioning back.

The Red Wings could really use someone like Brendan Morrow or Travis Moen to strengthen the PK especially.

I'm not sure where exactly Eaves got hit, and if this would have even made a difference for him, but the fact that it's been quoted as a head injury, I'm gonna say this:

As cool as hockey helmets are, and as much as i like them, the time has come to upgrade them with a major overhaul. With the increased speed of the game, the increased size and strength of the players, the increased velocity of the average player's slapshot, and the increased knowledge of long term brain effects of sudden impact, the hockey player needs similar protection as the rally car/motorcycle driver.

It can be designed in such a way with the classic body lines of a hockey helmet so as to resemble the overall shape, but it's got to be beefed up.

Why is this never talked about by any of hockey's talking heads?

completely agree. look at what football players go out on the field with - massive helmets with face masks. They aren't moving half as fast as hockey players but still wear them.

Still out, update.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

You have to start preparing that he isn't going to play this year, and thinking about him never playing again.

at this point there is really no reason to even consider this year. see if he can continue to make progress for next year, or at the very least, get him to a point where it isn't effecting his life after hockey. its a shame to see him out, but for his sake, i hope they are ultra conservative.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

I always thought Mursak would end up taking his spot. I would like to see him get a bit more time now that Zetter and Cleary are taking a break.

Sucks for Patty, really like his game. All the best :thumbup:

Just wondering, is our 5.7 million cap space including Eaves on LTIR? I'm not positive and don't know where to look haha.

I don't think he's on LTIR, just waiting for confirmation on that though.
