Quick Hits: What's Next?

The dominos are falling...slowly (Mandatory Credit: Matt Kartozian-US PRESSWIRE).

Hockeytown, No Limits

According to source, Wings had "numerous conversations" with Weber’s agent | Red Wings Front
So Weber visited Detroit and the Red Wings management had some chats with him, but it sounds like there was no way in hell he'd actually become a Wing.

Report: Shane Doan could start examining Red Wings, other suitors Friday | Detroit Red Wings | Detroit Free Press | freep.com
I still don't think Doan leaves the Coyotes, but man, do the Wings badly need to end up with him or Alexander Semin on this team.

This was a great, great, great, great day.

Around the NHL

Drop the mic: The Flyers only official words on the Shea Weber offer sheet - Broad Street Hockey
Smart move by the Flyers. Let the media lose their shit over this. No need for Philly to go nuts.

Shea Weber offer sheet aftermath: Nashville’s defining moment in NHL | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports
So are the Preds really going to be a contender for free agents or a glorified development team for the 25 teams outside of the Central Division?

Should the Sharks send Jakub Voracek an offer sheet? - Fear The Fin
Somebody might as well, now that the ice has been broken.

NHLPA talks about specifics of NHL’s offer in latest CBA meeting | ProHockeyTalk
Not much new to report, but apparently the contract that Philly offered Weber which breaks the mold on the NHL's initial offer wasn't met with derisive laughter by the players.

Sabres Sign Frederick Roy, Son Of NHL Legend Patrick Roy - Die By The Blade
Well it's not the Roy kid who attacked an unsuspecting goalie, but this shit does have a post-whistle high-sticking incident in his past that got him a 15-game suspension in his past. You just accept Patrick Roy's kids to be dicks. One more reason to dislike the Sabres.

Sam Gagner and the Oilers Look Like They're Heading to Arbitration - The Copper & Blue
Score 8 points in one game? Go to arbitration.

Lenny Palumbo is a Piece of Garbage - Battle of California
The other big story from yesterday was Lenny Palumbo and his homophobic rant where he called the "You Can Play" project "abominable" and equated homosexuality with weakness.

An Open Letter to the Niagara Falls Reporter - Pension Plan Puppets
PPP's open letter to Palumbo.

Let's Go Red Wings.
