So What Do You Think?

My first question would be, why would Tavares come to Detroit at this stage of his career?  He will get paid wherever he decides to go.

Can Danny DeKeyser Bulk Up?

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press answered a few questions today.

This one on does Danny DeKeyser know where the weight room is?

Yes. Danny DeKeyser’s issue is that it’s a daily challenge for him to consume enough calorie-dense foods to maintain his weight. Lisa McDowell, the Wings’ nutrionist, has had DeKeyser on as much as a 10,000-calorie a day diet. DeKeyser has more leeway than any of his teammates when it comes to having foods such as pizza and ice cream. In his own words, “I just try to pretty much eat whenever I can. I can pretty much eat whatever I want.”

DeKeyser can eat cheese every day, and thus is the envy of the media corps.

Who Will Step Up In Tonight’s Game 7?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Tom Jones of the Tampa Bay Times,

He's the Lightning's best player. He's its most important player.

Well, other than goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy. That's a given. Every team relies most heavily on its goalie.

But if the Lightning is going win a nerve-racking, heart-stopping, nail-biting Game 7 against the Capitals, the cool, calm and collected Victor Hedman will need to be the Lightning's next-best player.

Put it like this: if Hedman has a great Game 7, there's a good chance the Lightning will win. If he has a bad Game 7, the Lightning likely will lose.

That's how important he is to the Lightning.

How William Karlsson Ended Up In Las Vegas

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch,

The deal Kekalainen cut with Vegas went like this: The Knights took the contract of the injured David Clarkson, who had two more years and $10.5 million remaining and was physically incapable of playing hockey. The Knights also got a first-round pick in 2017 and a second-round pick in 2019. In exchange, they promised to pass on forward Josh Anderson and backup goaltender Joonas Korpisalo in the expansion draft, and they “agreed” to take Karlsson.

This is a sensitive subject for Jackets fans. I’m a bit more sanguine. Karlsson had scored zero goals in his last 45 regular-season games with the Jackets. He was part of the price the Jackets had to pay to unload Clarkson’s contract. As it turns out, it might have been too high a price — but there is a return.

Had Clarkson’s contract not come off the Jackets’ cap, Kekalainen would be hard pressed to take care of the free agents who need new contracts. Artemi Panarin and Sergei Bobrovsky are just the start of a long list of to-dos that are more doable with Clarkson off the books.
