from Cam Cole of the Vancouver Sun,
The smartest team in hockey wasn’t smart enough, this time around, to beat the salary cap.
And the fallout, for the Detroit Red Wings, was most likely what killed their 2009-10 season. Mikael Samuelsson escaped to Vancouver, where he scored 30 goals and eight more in the playoffs. Marian Hossa and his under-appreciated 200-foot game left for Chicago. Waterbug Jiri Hudler bolted to Moscow Dynamo of the KHL . . . and then, there’s the pair of Detroit bit players who have figured prominently in the boxscores of two of the three games in this Stanley Cup final.
How much better, and deeper, would the Wings have been had they not lost Game 1 hero Tomas Kopecky to Chicago through free agency, or traded Ville Leino, whose third-period goal forced ovetime in Game 3, to Philadelphia in February for the proverbial bag of pucks?
The Blackhawks welcome Marian Hossa and Tomas Kopecky.

Detroit Red Wings forward Tomas Kopecky will undergo tests today to determine if he sustained any more damage Thursday during a third-period fight with Anaheim’s Francois Beauchemin.
Kopecky, his right cheek swollen, said he felt OK and his vision was good after Beauchemin battered him with a flurry of punches. Kopecky will have X-rays and a CT scan….
“When you take a punch to the head it’s always scary, so we’ll see,’’ Kopecky said. “Right now I don’t know (the damage). I feel all right.’‘

Wings forward Tomas Kopecky out for 4-6 months after suffering a partially torn left anterior cruciate ligament and a sprained MCL when he flipped over Columbus forward Manny Malhota in Thursday’s game, general manager Ken Holland said on Friday. After a two-week period to let the swelling go down, Kopecky will have surgery.
Red Wings play-by-play man Ken Daniels felt Dion Phaneuf could have let-up on a hit on the Wings Tomas Kopecky last night. Your thoughts?
