First White blocking a shot with his face and now this. Although it was a horrific scene, this just shows how much heart the team has to sacrifice themselves to block a single shot. I'm sure Eaves didn't intend to block it with his ear, but every time a player blocks any shot they risk having something like that happen. That, to me, shows they have heart, not to mention balls!
Steve Yzerman had 137 points in his 92-93 season and it dropped down to 82 points in 93-94, it has to be because he had that daughter of his! Nevermind him playing 30 games less and switching to a more defensive style. Damn those babies!
We are truly lucky to have Pavel Datsyuk in the Detroit Red Wings. Seriously. I would never trade him for a Crosby, Ovechkin, Stamkos, or all the Sedins in the world. Why? Because he's simply the best and nobody will ever change my mind on that
I mean, sure, he doesn't rack up the most points in the season. But honestly, how many players out there get you standing out of your seat almost every time he touches the puck? Whether he's being his usual self deking and dangling with his virtuoso stick handling skills, making the puck vanish from the other player's stick with his wizardry. The man is pure magic.
tl;dr : I appreciate Pavel Datsyuk and you should too!
