‘A real good feeling’: Red Wings’ Danny DeKeyser goes back to school, earns WMU degree | Detroit News

Good for Danny DeKeyser. I’d love to see him have a strong season for the Red Wings next year, hopefully playing solid minutes alongside a healthy Mike Green.

Ron Francis will have work cut out for him in Seattle | Yahoo!

The Seattle franchise will probably feel a lot more like a traditional expansion team, probably better than those in the late ‘90s and early 2000s because of the draft rules. But Francis is coming into this with expectations raised by Vegas and GMs who will be far less willing to accommodate him.

I agree with this assessment. It would be cool if Seattle was successful out of the gate, even if they didn’t reach the levels that the Golden Knights did. Ultimately, good or bad, I hope they just pick a cool name for the team.
