In terms of Nill choosing to join the Stars, Nill was very honest about stating that he didn’t feel that he was going to leave the Wings until the “right opportunity” presented itself. To suggest that it was simply due to Bekki’s condition is not quite accurate.

That being said, it was part of the reason that he stayed in Detroit, and Nill’s now running in marathons to help raise awareness of and funds for breast cancer, and the Red Wings’ breast cancer awareness night was started because of her battles with cancer.

The Nills are very religious and they are crossing their fingers that God helps them out. Bekki’s fought cancer for a very, very long time, and she keeps on defying the odds, but once it spreads…You’ve only got so long. She’s a very brave person and the Nills are an incredible family.
