Red Wings outlook: Niklas Kronwall will continue to be team's workhorse on defense | MLive.com
Kronwall is only behind Datsyuk and Zetterberg in my book of the Wings' most valuable players. He brings a whole other dimension to our questionable defense.

Do the Detroit Red Wings Need Daniel Alfredsson? | The Detroit Sports Site
From my point of view, as long as his contract is not outrageous, re-signing Alfredsson is only a positive. He brings a lot to the team, and he is still good enough to play, based off of what we saw last season. If he wants to play another season, sign him.

Rick DiPietro has a new career on sports talk radio | ProHockeyTalk

It's a shame that DiPietro's career never worked out they way that he planned. I mean, he was the first overall pick back in 2000. His new occupation is a little less injury-prone. Although, sore throats are far from fun.

Sedins' rebound depends on staying healthy - Sportsnet.ca
Both Sedin's had below-average season's last year for the Canucks. They are not getting any younger, and their glory days may be behind them. But, I have a feeling that the Canucks' new head coach Willie Desjardins will use the Sedin's skill sets better than the way Tortorella used them.
