I know some people (UB44, for one) will roll their eyes, but I didn't want to lose Boychuk if it was avoidable, either. Thought he might be able to provide something next season (and they will need to keep as many cheap options available to them moving forward).

But hey, MARK EATON.
Damn you and your quick quoting!

Seriously though, I don't disagree with you that Despres/Bortuzzo shouldn't be sitting for Eaton. I don't like it. That said, Eaton did look fine against MTL the other night and my guess is they're just trying to get him some game action since it's been so long. If he has to fill in for injuries, better to spot him a game or two now than let him get more and more rusty. If it becomes an ongoing thing I'll have a much bigger issues with it.

Still, the aforementioned histrionics were pretty much off the charts.
