Eaves has a hell of a shot, I don't know why they don't use him whenever they need a winger for Datsyuk.  


Helm's absence is really hurting this team.  It's like night and day when he's in/out of a game.  I was hoping to get him back in time for playoffs.  Now I just hope he comes back someday.

I've mentioned that before in the past.  Eaves' one-timer is awesome and he's a right handed shot.  All the different things that Babcock tried this year, I'm surprised he didn't try that.

I like this team.

I hate to say I told you so...

I love Helm. The prototypical bottom-6'er. Very valuable. Does a lot of the dirty work that most just aren't willing to do. He's such a little firepisser. I love that about him.


You told us so? The guy hasn't played all year, he has barely skated all year and you are the guru that told us so?

I'm all for Eaves getting more playing time. Don't understand why he's the odd man out lately. I think he's starting to look better after being out for such a long time.

Haha. I love it when people label pessimism as "realism."


Anyway, you're wrong; back problems that don't require surgical intervention are often completely recoverable.


And often they're not. "That's the problem with back injuries." That may be pessimism, but there's realism in it.

"If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!" - Kierkegaard

Didn't read the thread, but Holland said today on hockey central that they're still crossing their fingers and that he skated today, yadda yadda yadda. I'd think that would require a semi deep playoff run, though.

anyone surprised by this news was clearly in denial.


he got injured at a terrible time, magnifies it. And in 2 years he has only played what 71 games now?

you twisted this so horribly wrong to try to get it in your favor.

1. this is a short season

2.he was not useless last season he played 70 games and was a good center

There's less realism than pessimism in it. And there is anyway plenty of realism in optimism also.
