They'll be going hard after trade candidates (perhaps in direct competition with the Leafs once again)

Does Blake make major changes to Kings or minor fixes?
Gavin Lee
5:28
I don't think this is the year he makes major changes, but next year if Doughty is looking more and more like he's leaving in free agency and they aren't back in the playoffs, it'll be time to blow it up
5:29
They've done some nice things recruiting young players this spring, and they still have a few really really good players.
But it's not really a recipe for a contender at the moment.
Wings Fan

Are the Wings ever gonna just leave Detroit? Like the Raiders or Chargers?
Gavin Lee
5:29
Never.
Richard Portillo
5:29
Wow. Just wow.
Gavin Lee
5:29
Bad wow or good wow?

With a new focus on skill and a departure from defense, can Brown and or Gabby (if healthy) regain some value?
Gavin Lee
5:30
They can't really regain any value, though there was a time at the beginning of the season that Brown didn't look like a fourth liner.
I guess that is a positive.
Bettman

Will the NHL expand to countries other than the US and Canada?
Gavin Lee
5:30
We talked about this at the very end of last week's chat.
5:31
I do believe that is a plan for the future.
Whether they are technically in the NHL, or some sort of champions league I don't know..but if the league wants to keep growing it's a natural step.

I love honey mustard. With a passion.
Gavin Lee
5:31
You can have all of it.
Manny Machado
5:31
What are the quickest ways to heal a bruise?
Gavin Lee
5:32
Honey mustard, probably.
Chris

Jim Montgomery to coach FLA?
Gavin Lee
5:32
He'd be a nice fit wouldn't he?
With Borgstrom coming in, and perhaps even going and getting Butcher this summer.
Chris
5:32
I don't think so. I don't want him to leave Denver!!
5:33
But I would understand.
Gavin Lee
5:33
As much as NCAA hockey wants to be NCAA football/basketball, they have a hard time competing with the pros.
If Florida offers him the job, I would be shocked if he turned it down.
Chris
5:33
He has a second interview
Gavin Lee
5:34
He does.
Florida is waiting to talk to other assistants that are still coaching though.
It's not his job yet by any means.
Denver is also giving him more money to stay.
Chris
5:34
Dale Talon is on NHL network at 7:00 PM Eastern
Oh yes, he has said publicly he would only leave for an NHL job.
Gavin Lee
5:35
To be fair, if the AHL came calling a little closer to the end of his contract..it might not look too bad either.

What do you think of Niskansen injuring Crosby?
Gavin Lee
5:36
So, here's the thing. I think it's terrible that Crosby got injured, I think it's reckless that Niskanen's stick hit him. But I just can't buy that he purposely tried to hurt him.
I've reacted in that exact manner when playing, raising a stick to an incoming player off balance. Maybe that's dirty, but it definitely wasn't on purpose.
Chris
5:37
It's just that if he leaves, probably Terry, Gambrell and others might jump. That would be a bummer for DU.
I live in Denver and would love to see what Monty could do with the Avs!
