I do know why Despres is being scratched: Eaton is Shero's boy.
Actually, I've been pleasantly surprised by Eaton's play since he signed - he's been solid. Niskanen is the one who should be sitting - he's been terrible this year. I'd say Engelland would be a candidate for the press box, but he's our only heavyweight fighter. With Brooks playing smarter positional hockey but not hitting as much (which I'm fine with BTW), he also brings some much needed toughness (in a hitting/clearing the crease sense) to the defense corps.
