Abel to Yzerman

It’s Easy As 1, 2, 3

IwoCPO must be without an internet connection, so here I am, Paul, filling in again.

The BJ’s will be on our mind for the next 51 hours or so but it really doesn’t matter who the opponent is, what does matter is the play of the Wings.

Saturday’s win against Carolina was a start, but the Wings need to play much better.

#1 on the agenda, get the power play fixed.

#2, cut-down the defensive turnovers.

#3, play a full 60 minute game.

Follow those points and not only will it mean success, it will also allow Detroit fans to be at ease and enjoy the Live Blog bi*****.

taking a giant poop right now, Paul.

When I log in now, I can no longer see any of the other users logged in at the bottom of the opening page. And there are no longer links to the next and previous entries in any of the blogs. So to go from the GDT to the LB I have to go to the A2Y mainpage and the click on the LB.

Those options will return too next week.

We had to slow down and remove some things to make sure the comments would not be an issue, and even though they are slow now, they would have been slower at times if we left those options, but all will be back next week.

Midget Pimp makes it 4-0.  Good play all-around.  Second rebound on the play, makes the Midget so happy he wants to bite somebody.

Yes DP we will be. 

Since I have your attention, I have received more than I thought I would requests about people paying a price and not seeing the majority of ads.

The ads that would be removed are at top of page, top right sidebar, very right sidebar and ad under first post on blog pages and under the post on permalink page.

What do you folks think.  It would not be a year to year thing, but a lifetime thing.

Is there a ten goal rule, like a T-Ball game? I am concerned about Columbus’ mental health and self esteem.

Is it over? Is the hurting over yet? Can we be family again? Has mommy stopped drinking? Will daddy stop touching me?

Looks like everything’s back to normal, so I’m just stopping by to check to see who survived the Deluge.

Goddamm, what a difference a Lidstrom makes.

I hate to be Eeyore here, and I will never downplay the importance of Lids, but this game looks a lot more like a piss poor CBJ team than anything. Wings are obviously doing what they need to, and that’s great, but the competition is really soft.

Yes, you have to remember most people who come by KK are not members and that number continues to grow, so I would be just fine there.

The ads aren’t an issue for me, I just ignore them. But this site is definitely subscription worthy. Make them that don’t wanna pay look at twice as many ads.
