Quick Hits: The Get a Move On Edition

In Red Wings Land

Red Wings notebook: Dominik Kubalik eager for ‘fresh start’ in Detroit - Detroit News

“Right now I can see a clean table, a fresh start and fresh mind, and for it’s going to be helpful. When I found out an offer wasn’t going to be there (from Chicago) my hope was someone still believed in me and gave me a chance, which happened.”

Kubalik feels the Wings, especially with the moves in free agency, want to make a big step forward in the standings.

Kubalik with Hronek, Vrana and Zadina should have some familiarity at least joining the Wings.  I’m looking forward to it.
