Duffer’s Dabbles: Red Wings’ Larkin Might Want To Reconsider; Penguins’ Crosby out six weeks



On the one hand, you have to admire Dylan Larkin’s honesty. Then again, perhaps he should remember where his bread is buttered – or in this case, where he gets his pizza dough.

Detroit Red Wings captain Larkin did one of those social media experiments in which he answered a bunch of either/or questions for the NHLPA website. He choose Netflix over HBOMax, coffee over tea and a suit over sweats. Larkin also picked the Mighty Ducks over Slap Shot as his favorite hockey movie. Hmmm.

However, the answer that might leave him with some explaining to do was when he chose burgers over pizza. Evidently, he’s forgetting who it is that signs his paychecks.

That would be the Ilitch family, owners of Little Caesars Pizza. You know, the company who’s slogan is “Pizza, Pizza.”

Come on, Dylan. The name’s right there on the arena you walk into each morning during the NHL season.
