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*****.

Miller, Abdelkader, and Cleary are all -1 on the game.  What kind of shitty is it to have your team up by six but you’re -1?
Posted by monkey from here to Timbuktu on 03/26/12 at 09:37 PM ET

Cleary is the worst value per cap dollar on the team, IMHO.

I’ll be taking bro-in-law outta this hell-hole on Sunday.  Once I get him situated with us I have to fly back to pick up his car and drive it down to So-Cal.

You’re a saint. I’m sure D and your BiL realize how lucky they are.

If you’re around on the 14th, that ride I’m doing starts and finishes in Agoura/Westlake if you want to meet up for a pizza. I’ll probably be a wreck after 112 miles, but I’m definitely eating a whole pie before heading home.

This is prolly true.  I’m still somewhat hesitant to be too critical of the guy given the fact that he’s playing hurt for most of the year.  I guess I don’t uderstand why he didn’t have surgery early in the year.

He’s got a pizza joint up in Alexandria that s a favorite hang out for Red Wings fans before and after games when they come to town.

This season, I’d agree. Get that knee fixed up and it shouldn’t be a big deal.

Since getting his jaw broken on William Tell’s shot, it’s been one thing after another.  He never lived up to the arc he was on.  Never lived up to his contract value.  110% heart, $1.5 million overpaid.

I actually live a couple blocks away from Steve Mason.  The cashier at the carry out down the street says that Mason comes through and buys a hundred dollars worth of booze at least once a week. 

I wonder if Scott Howson goes through his house once a week and removes all the sharp objects…

It’s sad, he’s a pretty good goalie, but the Jackets are terrible.

Would you play for that team without it?  At least he knows he can count on the booze.

The Wings-killer.  What a laser shot from the top of the circle, through traffic, to tuck it into the top left corner at 85 mph. Too bad about his contract.  Hopefully contract splitting on trades will be allowed in the next CBA.
