I'd do it. Tippett doesn't trust Szwarz to kill penalties yet and Halpern is injury prone. I'd take eaves and send Szwarz down.

Isn't like he had a lot of time to get this in, unless you think he should make them come in at 7am to be told you're waived and then practice. Doesn't seem very Red Wings like, and I am sure they are extremely mad at whomever leaked this, if it is in their organization that person is going to be in trouble.

That tweet was at 9:15 am, when did you want him to break the news to him I guess? Just seems like more Holland hate getting out of control.

Agree, he'd be a great stop gap instead of having youngster forwards averaging less than 15 minutes in the NHL when they should be proving themselves in the AHL before getting the privilege to play in the NHL.

Talking to someone about getting waived two hours before the announcement is made is also kind of crappy.

He pk's (around 2 mins a game) and has a good 2 way game in addition to above average wheels.

Could be we have only heard for months now that he was most likely to hit this at some point. They might have already had internal discussions and he was just surprised it happened today. I was more pointing out the time stamp, the meeting was probably set to take place after morning skate, before the official waiver wire comes out. Also could be they got to him quicker, the team did hide Tootoo essentially just to have this meeting last time, basically as the lockerroom opened up he left and was told just that, my guess is they weren't counting on the media being this swift to get to Eaves.

Hollandgate; media exposing him for the incompetent GM he actually is. Kudos to him for keeping the facade up for as long as he did. There really is no way anyone can spin this to favor Holland.

Sucks for Eaves. He can be very useful in the playoffs. A playoff team in need should definitely pick him up.
