Put Your Karma In A Box And Ship It West Where It Belongs

I can’t offer you an explanation as to why your Detroit Red Wings continually lose to Darren Garcia’s Dive.  I can’t.  It baffles me and I’m past the point of trying to analyze it. 

It is, and we all have to do deal with this, what it is.  A regular season bit of strange.  The kind of strange you used to value back in your younger days?

No.  Quirky strange.  Weird and almost laughable strange.

Tears Of The Clowns? Heck Yes Dive Fans. You’re Invited Too. It’s A Live Blog.

As requested, a Motown reference.

By the way, after reading the Chiefs’ minimalist approach to todays blog, can I assume that this is the Live Blog for the Dives game?

Note From Plissken: I’m Done

Just got the word from Snake Plissken:  he’s had enough and he’s moving on.  Said the level of conversation around here wasn’t what he’d expected and that he’s headed to northern California where it’s a bit more…cosmopolitan.

7?  7 Means Squat.  Nothing To See Here But A Live Blog

I haul ass all day, running through airports, verbally abusing stewardesses named Geno and casting aside the most basic of all hygiene habits and standards.


So I can get home and kick off a live blog I’m not even allowed to participate in.

Happy Now?

I think, based on little since I didn’t see the game, that it’s safe to say the Wings have righted the ship.  I’m jet-setting all over the countryside again so I wasn’t able to watch or even catch up on the live blog.  Snake Plissken isn’t communicating with any of us anymore and the Diggers were less than descriptive today.

So I turned to a few guys you may not read too much of, starting with the Minnesota Star Tribune’s Michael Russo.
Russo’s Rants

Tonight, they were constantly on the attack and almost toying with the Wild. They fired 79 pucks at Josh Harding (registered shots, shots missed and shots blocked by the Wild). Often times, they’d work the puck down low. And if nothing was going, they’d just reset and start over by sending the puck back to the point.

It was like they were working the half court offense as somebody said. They fire the puck from everywhere, and it seemed every shot was a scoring chance.

Make It A Six Pack Why Don’t Ya?

Chris Osgood’s in net tonite, hoping to delay that imminent Toskala deal. 

I still can’t get over the idiocy of that particular idea.

And with Osgood’s return to the crease tonite, I’m sure your comments will be well-considered and even mild.

Wow… That Would Be Really Stupid

Goaltending got you down in the dumps?  Did you wake up your children this morning demanding that they find a way to bring Tim Thomas to Hockeytown?

No?  Good. Me either.


But hey.  Want to feel smart?  ‘Cause if you do? I’ve got a plan.

Franzen, Homer, McCarty and Suarez

Man, I’m tired.  Tired I tell you.  I sat on the couch last night, watched me some Wings and allowed this bastard to have his way with you on the Live Blog.

First time, long time. Great blog. So smart. All of you are.

Commissioner Bettman’s being interviewed on Versus. Very articulate.

Posted by Snake Plisken from Bay Road Ice Arena, Saginaw on 02/10/09 at 08:07 PM ET

And you let that go.  I was tempted to jump in and save the Live Blog.  But, I remembered our deal. I’m a healthy scratch as long as the Wings keep winning.

Rushmore In Hockeytown

John Buccigross is bored.  So he decided to name four players from each team to 30 different organ-I-zational Mt. Rushmores.

The Wings? 

Guess them before you click.

Minus The Gamewrecker?  It’s A Live Blog

I’ve got nothing to say to any of you.

But Chris in Hockey Hell did see Terry Crisp and Pete Web(b)er making their way to the SoGay this afternoon and sent us this image.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
