Because he was severely underpaid last year... you could not be more off base here.
Eaves is an incredibly versatile player and can fill multiple roles, great team guy, kills penalties - Eaves, Cleary, etc are the types of guys you NEED to win cups. period.
Woo-hoo, Stanley Cup here we come 'cause we got a fourth liner who can skate fast.
Let's re-sign all the guys who helped us get the 17th best PK in the league last year.
What did he do this year more than the last one? Apart from being part of a thin, seriously inflated market?
This takes the sting off of the Ericsson contract a bit.... just a tad though. I'm still pissed about that one!!
At least we actually NEED a blueline. Eaves doesn't do anything 40 guys in the AHL could do for half the price.
