Quick Hits: The Tradeasenko Edition
In Red Wings Land
Detroit Red Wings’ Tyler Bertuzzi: Delete social media, focus on hockey, key to resurgence - Freep
Just under four minutes from Bert answering questions I’d want asked with answers I’d expect him to give (blah blah just gotta play hockey and eliminate distractions). Then three minutes of Lalonde talking about Bertuzzi before moving onto Zadina and then the Oilers loss.
Around the League
Vladimir Tarasenko and Niko Mikkola Acquired From St. Louis Blues - Blueshirt Banter
This is a perfectly fine low risk trade which gives the Rangers some upgrades. Tarasenko is having a down year, but is a proven goal scorer who could be reinvigorated by joining the Rangers and good friend Artemiy Panarin.

Blues are retaining 50 percent salary.
1st rounder will be later of 2 first-round picks, either theirs or Dallas'. If Dallas finishes with top 10 pick it will shift to next year and be later of those two. https://t.co/wdNqTwl2xn
