Patrick Eaves

Didn't see this posted but the Red Wings blogosphere (WiiM,TPL,etc) is collecting well-wishes for #17 if anyone is interested in passing along a message.

Sorry mods if this is a repost.

Looking forward to seeing him back next year, could really use his speed and determination in the lineup. I am a Big fan, been waiting to hear he is doing better, but not a whole lot of updates.

What he said ^^^^ The Wings really miss him this year.

I was told back in November that the Wings had told Eaves to be patient with his playing time. They were showcasing others at the time but that he was a big part of their plans for the second half and into the playoffs. That puck to the face derailed a lot more for the Wings than just Eaves season.

Hopefully he can get healthy and come back strong next season.

He took the ice Feb 17 for his first practice since the injury and is still having head aches every day all the time. Haven't heard anything since. Would be nice to have an update.

From a recent MLive article

Quote:
Nothing new with Eaves

Forward Patrick Eaves continues to skate lightly on his own but still is experiencing concussion-like symptoms.

The club counted him out for the playoffs long ago.

“He's feeling better all the time, but you want to feel better for a long time,'' Holland said. “The Stanley Cup playoffs is no time for a comeback.''

Eaves suffered a broken jaw when he was hit by a shot on Nov. 26.

Welp, I guess that officially confirms what we already knew; Eaves is done for the year. At this rate, though, you start to wonder if he'll even be ready for next season (at this point, he's already been out for five months, and it's only another six until 2012-13 kicks off, assuming there's no labor issues in the meantime).

Really feel bad for the guy. He was a solid player, and we could really use him right now.

That's the major blow this team had when Eaves went down. He was one of our best PK'ers, who was more than willing to sacrifice his body to block shots. And he worked well with Helm.

I hope he can comeback next season.

I'd like know what our PK numbers were before and after that injury.

We will likely keep a roster spot open for him next year, and hope he's able to play again.

Me too.

Eaves provides speed, grit, and finish. He's just a smart player who is perfect for the 3rd or 4th line and PK unit. Guys as fast as him who play smart hockey don't grow on trees, unfortunately. We'll miss him for the playoffs.

This team certainly misses him. Get well soon, my friend.
