Former players Eric Lindros, Mike Gartner and Mike Liut, along with NHLPA Executive Director Don Fehr and former Executive Director Bob Goodenow weighed in.

The New Look Power Play

Blog: The Malik Report By Paul

Updated 4x at 3:21 PM: from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Much of practice was spent on special teams, which saw power play personnel redistributed. Zetterberg’s unit with Anthony Mantha and Niklas Kronwall had new looks in Andreas Athanasiou and Martin Frk. Dylan Larkin’s unit with Mike Green and Tyler Bertuzzi added Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar. The swaps give each unit speed (Larkin and Athanasiou) and a right-handed shot (Frk and Green)....

Blashill is hoping Athanasiou can help with zone entries.

“We wanted to make sure and give AA to that Zetterberg unit just to give them a little more speed and entry success,” Blashill said. “Zetterberg’s unit had a great, great run of getting in zone. It’s really only been the last couple weeks where they haven’t. But, it’s gone dry. So let’s see if we can help them there. And then with Frky there, he gives them a real shooting element on that power play.

“We’re hoping that they both can get some chemistry quick. That’s the hard part when you switch around, is you have to get chemistry quick, but you also get to a point where we’ve stayed patient with it, and we are not getting the results, so we have to look for other ways.”

Forget The Defense Chicago, Get Some Offense

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Steve Rosenbloom of the Chicago Tribune,

...generating offense remains the best thing the Hawks do and it might be the right and surprising move to make their strength stronger by trading for several scorers or snipers or anybody who can put the puck in the net the way they did with the Anthony Duclair trade. More of that. It might be the right play to try to outscore their roster of backup goalies and third-pair defensemen. Play pond hockey. It might kill coach Joel Quenneville, but it feels as if the Hawks already are there.

Wise up, nobody’s going to trade the Hawks an Erik Karlsson. Sorry, the Norris Trophies R Us store is closed. There likely will be a handful of good defensemen available, but only a handful, and that’ll jump up the bidding.

However, the Hawks might be able to rent right wing Thomas Vanek, who has 13 goals with Vancouver, or left wing Pat Maroon, who has 11 goals with Edmonton. Or both. Or players like them. That would seem to be the cheapest route, which figures to be the choice for a franchise that is at the crossroads whether it wants to admit it or not.

Then again, try this: The idea of trading for Montreal left wing Max Pacioretty is something that might appeal to Hawks GM Stan Bowman, who isn’t afraid to be bold or wrong, and has been both recently in the last year.
