I think Eaves should be in. Tootoo (if put in) would most likely IMO take Andersson's (sp?) spot. He has seemed lost a few times out there. But I would rather see Andersson than Sammy (but a right handed shot that can play the point on the PP isn't going to be taken out).
So, in theory, in order to play Eaves, Tootoo, Bert, and Sammy it would look something like:
Not great, I put Cleary on the bottom line because he hasn't been very effective IMO. Too many giveaways and bad decisions along the boards. Brunner on the second line as a reward. Bert up from the bottom line because he was GREAT last night. Eaves is listed as a center in the past. Sammy stays on the first line but could easily be swapped with Brunner (both righties).

It still would be nice to have that one guy.
