... young (old) man (men), a large portion of whom will likely not be awake for this one.
Hey, at least the late starts are much fewer this season, right?
(Pay attention to the "Hot and Not" section.... wow.)
There is no problem in Mike Babcock's life that can't be cured by splitting up Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk. Hair, hunting, Fresca shortages: split them up because it always works.
Split them up because Franzen hasn't scored in five years. Weiss has zero assists. Charlie Buckets: one goal. Split them up because that's what we do. Every year. Several times. It's the solve-all.
Sorry for the brevity; I'm a bit sick today.
Paul here for the live blog while the other blogger works at what he does and unfortunately, I had to kick RedMenace to the press box because the Wings lost the only live blog he did.
I think half of the Canadian media is at the Joe tonight, of course, following every move Daniel Alfredsson makes.
But as Red Wings fans, we have other things to follow and hopefully we will see some goals from the fellows wearing the winged wheel and the defense remains tight.
Once again, I apologize for the late start... stupid "real life" getting in the way.
... to the Eastern Conference? It seems like the NHL's "Top Men" have done their best to make the Wings think they're still in the West.
Sorry for the late start, folks.
Aloha. Thanks to Paul for filling in with the LBs and welcome to Red Menace who's assumed the title of GDT Czar.
Quite the coincidence the other night. 2 minutes and change into the game and one of scumbag Patty's henchmen drills Kronwall from behind. Right off the hop, eh Twitchy? Incidental, I'm sure. The only thing missing was Lemieux's 22 and the side boards.

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.
