Though I'm ecstatic that Eaves scored the shootout goal last night, I'd suggest that 3 attempts is a pretty small sample size and not enough to suggest that he's one of the better shootout options.

I would agree that there's not too many decent shootout options.

The bottom line is Eaves is a ufa and the Wings have kids coming up. Sheahan for sure can play a 3rd line role next year, maybe even carry the top line's piano. I think he's a useful player, but doesn't bring enough to warrant being brought back next year.

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

The way I look at it, is we're not winning games. Plain and simple. Before anyone blames the injury bug, we've won some incredible games against top teams with key players injured so that isn't working for me anymore. The team is just inconsistent and too many holes need filled (not plugged).

 

My 2 cents.

The injuries and role in roles they're not accustomed to, and a lack of consistent lines, are why the team is so inconsistent.

Long term the best option is replacing the vets with the kids, and using the gained cap space for trades at a future date.

Short term the best option is gaining another top player in this years FA while we have the cap space and still have Pavs and z.

IMO, I think we should steer clear of overpaid FAs. Let the kids work next year, and come trade deadline trade the expendable kids for a top available player.

Basically, if we use FA this year we WILL lose a prospect to waivers. I'd rather bang the buck and trade him at a later date
