In Red Wings Land

On Hicketts, DeKeyser, and Kronwall – DetroitHockey.Net
Clark at DetroitHockey.Net agrees with Peter about how the Wings should be utlizing Joe Hicketts during DeKeyser’s absence now that the LTIR option is available (and smart), and takes it a step further in looking up the schedule to a realistic time in which it could fit into the Red Wings’ odd way of using Kronwall.

Around the League

Standing pat on the top nine didn’t work out for the Maple Leafs - Pension Plan Puppets
Continuing the theme of ‘From Hell’s Heart I Stab at Thee’ around the Atlantic, I’m enjoying that the Leafs are having problems and that Mike Babcock’s inexplicable love of Tyler Bozak seems to be a big part of that. PPP tries to solve the problem, but I’d prefer they use Bozak as their 1C and bleed points all season because I’m still as petty as I was yesterday .
