CTVSportsnet.com is reporting that Rob Blake will become a Detroit Red Wing sometime in the next two days. No terms of a possible deal were revealed, but the Kings captain and All-Star defenseman will not come cheap. drwcentral.net sees the only players Detroit would be willing to part with as Vyacheslav Kozlov and Todd Gill, who, along with a draft pick or prospect, could be enough of an offer to convince Los Angeles to make the trade. With Blake’s contract up at the end of the year, whoever should aquire him will have to pay a pretty penny to keep him. The Red Wings would have three of the top defensemen in the NHL should the deal go through, with Blake joining All-Star Nicklas Lidstrom and the injured Chris Chelios on the blue line.
