Red Wings-Sharks post-morning skate Tweets and videos: trade chatter and Blashill’s media availability

Updated at 1:13 PM: Okay, we didn’t get any information of Red Wings-related note out of the morning skate ahead of tonight’s game between the San Jose Sharks and Detroit Red Wings, who haven’t played in just over two years (the teams play tonight at 7:30 PM EST on Bally Sports Detroit/NBCS California/97.1 FM)…

But I tried to set y’all up with some familiarization regarding the Sharks, whose 17-15-and-1 record resembles Detroit’s 15-15-and-3 record, as does their smarting pride after they lost 8-5 to Pittsburgh on Sunday, just as Detroit lost 5-2 to Boston.

Of all honesty, the most interesting part of the Twitter timeline during the Red Wings’ morning skate was the Boston Globe’s Kevin Dupont suggesting that the Red Wings might have some interest in disgruntled Boston forward Jake DeBrusk, who’s asked for a trade. DeBrusk didn’t take part in the B’s morning skate today, and it turned out that he was placed in COVID protocol, but the theory is worth sticking in our back pocket and noting for later this season.

So here’s Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill’s media availability from today’s morning skate:

Update: First morning skate Tweet at 11:33 AM:
