Dan’s Daily: Penguins Trade Block, Red Wings Charging



Penguins Trade talk, Jeff Petry

In three hours, one team fell short in their attempt to get closer to the Pittsburgh Penguins, and another surprise underdog took full advantage. The Detroit Red Wings both moved close to the Penguins and helped them by beating the Washington Capitals. Sources told Hockey Now about the Penguins’ trade potential, while Ryan O’Reilly knocked a pair of goals in 37 seconds. And Timo Meier mania is sweeping Canada after the Winnipeg Jets were linked to the Sharks winger, who is at the height of his powers.

We’re a little or a lot late today. I’d like to thank everyone. Perhaps I’m reaching the point in my career where I’ve weeded out the insane people who hate everyone. The discussion after our Penguins trade scoop was mature and inquisitive. As a full confession, I hate when we get those stories because it used to open the door for a lot of nonsense.
