Why Did Dean Lombardi Trade For Ben Bishop?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Maik,

In a curious but intriguing move that may turn the Western Conference playoff race upside-down, the Los Angeles Kings acquired the No. 1 available goaltender on the NHL trade market Sunday, landing Ben Bishop from the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The primary question surrounded the timing of the deal: Why did the Kings wait until now and not make the move weeks ago?

“Preferably, I would have done this deal two weeks ago,” answered Kings’ general manager Dean Lombardi, “but this is just the way trade-deadline deals seem to work.”

Less than a day before completing the trade for Bishop, the Kings finally got their starting goaltender and two-time Stanley Cup champion, Jonathan Quick, back in the lineup after a 59-game injury absence.

Going For The Cup In Minnesota

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of NHL.com,

The State of Hockey has never won the Stanley Cup.

The Minnesota North Stars made the Final twice in their 26 seasons in the Twin Cities, in 1981 and 1991, but lost. The Minnesota Wild made it as far as the Western Conference Final once in their first 15 seasons, in 2003.

But the Wild rank first in the West and second in the NHL standings this season, and general manager Chuck Fletcher made it clear they were going for it when he acquired forwards Martin Hanzal and Ryan White from the Arizona Coyotes on Sunday.

When you have a chance to make a run, you don't let it go by.

"There's not going to be a called third strike here," Fletcher said. "We're taking a swing. Our players deserve that, our fans deserve that and we'll just see where it goes."

The Wings This Week

Blog: The Malik Report By Paul

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Here are five things to watch this week:

More recalls from Grand Rapids?

The Red Wings recalled Drew Miller Sunday from Grand Rapids, giving them 13 healthy forwards (excluding Gustav Nyquist, whose suspension ends Saturday) and seven defensemen.

They might need to recall more players if, as expected, they do more dealing.

Possibilities up front include Martin Frk (39 points, including team-leading 20 goals), Tomas Nosek (14 goals, 38 points) and Red Wings' 2015 top pick Evgeny Svechnikov (15 goals, 32 points), who is riding a 12-game points streak.

The Red Wings got a look at Tyler Bertuzzi (nine goals, 26 points in 32 games for the Griffins) earlier this season for seven games.

On defense, Robbie Russo (six goals, 29 points, team-leading plus-14) would seem to be the next in line to get a look.

The 23-man roster limit is lifted after the trade deadline, but the salary cap remains in effect.
