You make very good points. I thought Eaves played decent tonight, which is about the most we can hope for out of him. With the way Ryan was playing in Albany, I would have like to seen him just bumped in to Walker's spot but I thought he was very unnoticeable out there tonight, regardless of his limited ice time.
I feel bad for Brookbank as well but, and I hate to say it, I think the team needs more of a guy like Ryan than Brookbank at this point. Wade just cannot be relied on to take a regular shift at this point and with Florida playing the way they are, we need points so we don't lose any ground. Hopefully Bouwmeester gives that team a giant middle finger and walks at the deadline.
If I'm Wade, though, I don't know how much I'm missing getting punched in the head night in and night out. I'd take my league minimum weekly paycheck and be damn happy for the opportunity!
