Trade gives Red Wings 'flexibility' to make free agent moves

Yahoo.com: Puck Daddy (Josh Cooper) — BUFFALO, N.Y. – With one draft day trade, Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland acknowledged he gave his team the ability to make a splash in free agency.

Auston Matthews vindicates NHL expansion efforts in U.S.

Yahoo.com: Puck Daddy (Ryan Lambert) — BUFFALO, NY – One of the more important games in Toronto Maple Leafs history, as far as myth-building goes, didn’t actually involve the Maple Leafs. Or maybe it did. Auston Matthews honestly can’t remember. Matthews was maybe two or three years old the first time he went to a Phoenix Coyotes game, likely in the 1999-2000 season. “I don't really remember much,” the presumptive No. 1 pick...

Matchsticks and Gasoline (HockeyGoalieEh) — The Flames will need a goalie. Fortunately there are plenty of options. A few days ago Matchsticks broke down the statistics behind Joni Ortio and it became pretty apparent that if he's the starter next year then the Calgary Flames will be in trouble.

Kuklas Korner (George Malik) — From ESPN's Tal Pinchevsky: Even Petr Klima sometimes has trouble believing it has been more than three decades since he tiptoed out of a hotel in Nussdorf, West Germany, that housed the Czechoslovakian national team. It was on that night in 1985 that he met a pair of Detroit Red Wings employees in a darkened parking lot and defected to start a new life in the NHL. That act of...

Kuklas Korner (Paul) — from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, Ben Bishop? Marc-Andre Fleury? Brian Elliott? Just which goalie exactly ends up in Calgary remains to be seen but my sense is that Bishop tops the list as far as the Flames’ interest. Now that expansion is official, the Tampa Bay Lightning know they've got 12 months to figure out their goalie situation and I think it's more likely than not that they trade...
