When Eaves got hit I worried that he was hurt really badly, I wish I'd been wrong.
If his career ended because of that puck that would break my heart, I love him as a Red Wing.
(on another note, if his career were to end, I also feel for Josi, I can't imagine how bad he must have felt initially and ending somebody's career would be a terrible way to begin yours)

Poor guy. Never has a chance to get his game to 100%. I remember last season, right after his hat-trick game, he was injured. If it wasn't for his injuries, I don't see why he couldn't be a 20 goal scorer.


Yeah, what's to stop Chris Chelios Patrick Eaves from scoring 20 goals?

I kid, I kid. I actually agree with you here. This has been a troubling string of injuries in more than one way. Broken jaws aren't easy to come back from, and concussions are even tougher. I hope we get another chance to see him play at 100% in the winged wheel again next year, but I hold out zero hope that we'll see he again this season... and even if we did, he'd be a shadow of his full tilt self -- hardly the kind of situation you want in the playoffs.

Patrick Eaves doesn't expect to return to Red Wings this season

"I think I'm pointing towards next season," Eaves said as he was walking out of the Wings' locker room at Joe Louis Arena. "If I can make it back, great. But I'm more focused on taking care of this once and for all.

"I still have the headaches frequently."

Topic Sidenote: God, I miss Sir Drake!
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).
