Abel to Yzerman

Do you know 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.

At least this time they've come to us - and that's a good thing, right? What's that? The Sharks are 7-0-1, with a +23 goal differential? They're 9-2-1 vs. the Wings in the last 12 games? There's only TWO defensemen playing for Detroit tonight that have more than a half-season of NHL hockey under their belts?

Well, at least Tatar's getting into the game, and NHL's The Wheel of Justice gave Cody McLeod 5 games for trying to pop Kronner's head like a zit on prom night... that's... well, that's something to be hap... yeah, I can't even get excited over that. This will likely be a massacre, and Cleary will still play "realgud" regardless of how many times he trips over the his own feet.

This is RedMenace filling in for The Master Chief... hide the pets and pepper your angus. It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Well, I don’t quite have the same gifts of wit and prose that the Chief does (not to mention the sheer hatred of everything wink ), so hopefully that didn’t suck too terribly. Also, it appears some of my “rogue code” was responsible for the “opening in a new tab when trying to post replies” debacle in the GDTs, but I think I’ve fixed it.

Dammit, when did Cleary put on Pavel’s jersey?

Because he’s not that good? We need space for Helm, Tatar, and Nyquist. That’s an entire line. I’d replace Tootoo in a heartbeat.

Tootoo is a 4th liner, no doubt, but he’s quite useful in that role. In fact, I’d argue he’s more useful than both Samuelsson and Cleary, both of whom he’s also cheaper than.

But hey, I’ve always liked Tootoo.

Derp, check that, Cleary is cheaper than Tootoo, but only by $150k.

Eesh, Lashoff was looking for a boarding/check in the back penalty there. I gotta believe only his lack of speed on the hit prevented it from being called.

Hertl looks like he’ll fit right in with SJ.

Of course that is based on the assumption that he’ll choke come playoff time and we have yet to see that.  He has Marleau and Thornton to mentor him though, so I have faith.

Damn, two bad passes by Bertuzzi when we could’ve gotten out of our zone. Stuff like this is why we’re having trouble this year.

Yeah, looked like he tried to “shove” Hertl, but his hands slid up a little high… was very close.
