In Red Wings Land
Dwayne Blais originally worked with the Capitals.— Jake Rivard (@RivardNHL) September 4, 2021
Perhaps he can help with solving the stagnant offense the Wings have struggled with over the last few seasons. #lgrw https://t.co/KcAYJEaRw8
Apparently Kosinski is a Wings fan and the winner of the 2011 Red Wings charity poker tournament.
I couldn’t personally tell you whether either of these hirings are good, but the idea of analyzing AND developing is something which I heavily favor.

Eh I don’t hate these. That’s a pretty solid entrance to the list of outdoor hockey getups.
The Canadiens will not match the Hurricanes' offer sheet to Jesperi Kotkaniemi. Montreal will receive Carolina's 1st- and 3rd-round 2022 Draft picks as compensation.#GoHabsGo https://t.co/ErFdL2ucEb— Canadiens Montréal (@CanadiensMTL) September 4, 2021
"Arizona trades Dvorak to Montreal in exchange for: i) the better of Montreal's own 1st round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft and Carolina's 1st round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft (previously acquired by Montreal); and ii) Montreal's own 2nd round pick in the 2024 NHL Draft." https://t.co/S0RGpTyKsC— Arpon Basu (@ArponBasu) September 4, 2021
Another trade condition in the Dvorak deal:— Brennan Klak (@nhlupdate) September 4, 2021
The 1st is somewhat protected: If one or both of MTL + CAR have top 10 picks in the 2022 draft, then Arizona gets the lower of the two picks. #Habs #Yotes
Ok so instead of that 1st + 3rd + prospect thing we discussed earlier in the week, it’s just 1st+2nd.
