Abel to Yzerman

Back For More

Most fans are not expecting winning outcomes when they are watching a Wings game. We do expect a good effort though, and to not be completely embarrassed for our team. Thanks to a core of young of players, the last two games have not been too hard to watch. Even some excitement in the mix of late. Anyway, we're getting to see just what the future will hold for the Wings. I'm guessing we'll be here for a while. I'm all in.

The "Yzerplan,"eh?

It's an early Live Blog!

That may be Jinnys’ epitaph for his time on the Wings.

I tend to drift off during games lately, what with such wonderfully talented players. Anyway, between Howard, Nielsen,and Abby they are stealing a combined $13.5 mil and have combined for 3 goals, 9 points and 2 Wins…...let that sink in for a while while I drink myself into a coma… sick

No Ozzie it could last forever. Jimmy could suck the rest of the season.

Played through the first period to see all the scoring after putting away groceries and warming up some lasagna and feeding the pets.

“Not embarrassed”, eh’ Kate?  Wow, that was pretty close!

Hello Reprobates!

But then Ozzie had to go and give his “polyannaish” critique of Jinny… now I’m embarrassed.

Hey 19! What’s going on in her—

...oh. Glad I missed that first period.

I don’t pay much attention to NFL until playoffs, but they have been much more entertaining than the Wings, sadly.

I’m certainly glad we’ll have Filpulla around for another year to Sheppard the youngsters, cause that’s about all he’s good for at this stage of his career…

So are aunts.  grin

Yeah the Filppula signing to me signaled just how poor the forward pool in the farm system was and that he didn’t think there were many close to NHL level.  Or at least was told that by Draper.

Abdelkader looking for his first of the season.  Cheese and crackers that’s just disturbing.

According to Elliot Friedman, the Anaheim Ducks have made it known they would be open to taking on other teams “dead” contracts for a price. I hope Stevie has the Duck on his speed-dial…

I tend to agree. I think the best forwards we have “in the system” are playing here right now.

That’s interesting to note. I wonder what they’re asking.

No worries, this explosive Detroit offense can pound out 4 goals in one period.

We knew some of those mentioned would struggle but all at the same time? I’m trying to think who (besides Bert, Hronek and Bernier) are having a better season than last year. And I’m sorry but that’s a coaching problem.

Oh hey, we scored.  surprised
