I'll be pissed if Eaton is anything more than the #8 D. I like Eaton but I really don't want Despres sent down over this signing and that could happen. Despres makes mistakes here and there but so will Eaton and Despres can make plays that Eaton can only dream of making.

As for Lovejoy, I think playing regularly is helping him in Anaheim. He has NHL talent but he was mostly the odd man out in Pittsburgh and struggled when he occasionally got in the lineup. Constantly being in and out of the lineup wasn't good for a D-Man that was still developing. He needed to play regularly. I'm glad he's getting the chance in Anaheim and maybe that's led to the turnaround in his game.
