Genius! No…Idiot

ESPN’s Scott Burnside has proclaimed your Detroit Red Wings the eventual winner of the Western Conference. Well, he actually says they’ll finish first in the West.  Interpret that as you wish.  Of course, this adds to the growing list of hockey “experts” predicting big things out of Hockeytown. 

Odd, though, considering I just read a geek-filled usenet alt .net, .com thing the other day where a duck torturer claimed “no one’s picking the Wings to finish anywhere near the top of their conference.”

GM Ken Holland once again proved he’s one of the best in the business by signing longtime Devil Brian Rafalski moments after Mathieu Schneider bolted to Anaheim.

Only a very stupid person would disagree with Burnside’s assessment of Holland.

And just when I was about to place Burnside on my short list of credible US-based hockey writers…

Veteran Mike Sillinger is back for another go-round with the Wings…

Yeah…must have missed that one.

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
