DD On The PP

 from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Danny DeKeyser's career power-play statistics are far from impressive. But he logged significant minutes on the man-advantage when it excelled two seasons ago.

The Detroit Red Wings don't many options and are desperate to get the power play going, so DeKeyser will get another look Thursday against the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center (8:30 p.m., Fox Sports Detroit).

"What Danny brings is a real ability to break the puck up the ice," Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. "He's a good skater, he can move the puck. One of the things we've talked lots about is we've got to do a better job of getting in the zone and having more possession time. I think he can help with that."

I hope he’s been practicing his Neutral-zone Drop Pass.

Yes it can. For example, they could go from consistently not scoring to consistently getting scored on. At least this change doesn’t seem to make that any more likely.

If it keeps Kronwall off the PP it will be an improvement

Only an injury can keep Kronwall off the PP, nothing else.
