Dan’s Daily: Penguins ‘Looking Hard’ For Trade, Will Larkin Hit the Block?
It’s a heavy-duty NHL trade deadline Dan’s Daily. Our Dave Molinari went one-on-one with Pittsburgh Penguins president of hockey ops Brian Burke, and Dave didn’t worry about offending. He asked the tough questions, and Burke gave answers. It’s a great read.
Also in the Daily, the Vegas Golden Knights need to make a trade. The Vancouver Canucks will put more players on the block. What will the Detroit Red Wings do with Dylan Larkin? And what will the Boston Bruins do now that Bo Horvat is off the market?
I dusted off an old tradition on Tuesday and fed our business partners at WPXI, Channel 11. We had a good lunch, and they set me up in the big conference room like I was important. You’ll be seeing a lot more from our friends on the TV side; we can do a better job of promoting all of the good stuff they do, and they will be promoting us a little more.
So … as a precursor — Watch Channel 11!
