Quick hits. Returning from injury/injury release

Red Wings face big roster decisions as injured players return – THW

Other players who may leave the roster for various reasons:

Joe Veleno – cleared from waivers; has nine points in 31 games this season.

Pius Suter – last year of contract; he floats all over the lineup, though it’s a solid two-way contributor.

Adam Ehrne – final year of contract; The physical sixth-ranked player with 13 points in 32 games this season.

There’s nothing shocking or particularly new here based on what we’ve been talking about, but the article mentions two linebackers who could return to the lineup without listing any D-man as one of the “who could go” categories.

Not much criticism there, because even when Robert Hague is healthy, I don’t want him anywhere near the lineup.

Former Penguins forward Matt Cook finds performance training in Minnesota Triblive

Coach Matt Cook said he’s different from Matt Cook as a player.

“Unfortunately, people saw ’24’ and ‘Cook’ on the ice and they figured out that’s who I am,” Cook said. “They have the right to it. They are fans of the game and this is where they will get their guesses. But anyone who has ever taken the time to get to know me or understand me knows that’s not all there is to it. I coach the game a lot differently than I used to play. I was a product of how I was trained when I was young. I was taught to hit him before he hits you. You always want to get the biggest hit because it builds momentum for your team.”

“I train very differently. … I want to be able to give each of my children the tactical tools to be successful.”

I don’t think I’ll ever be able to forgive Matt Cook the player for what an absolute disgraceful rat he was, or like Matt Cook, but if Matt Cook the coach can help kids not grow up. he, then, it is positive.
