Slowly, and I mean really slowly, we're coming to grips with it. We're collectively accepting the reality that Nick Lidstrom is gone. We'll talk about the blue line and the power play and we can even have a discussion without mentioning The Perfect Human. His loss can be forgotten for longer periods of time now.
Then you read something like this and it's a punch in the face.
Lidstrom's stall has been taken over by Jonathan Ericsson and there's a picture of Lidstrom hanging amongst the other Wings' legends in the locker room.
Whew. That part about Ericsson taking Lidstrom's locker gave me the vomit chills.
Kulfan's article talks about Mike Babcock pretending like there's actually gonna be a season. Cute.

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: email@example.com
