Abel to Yzerman

Okay, NOW It’s Time to Get Serious…

First and foremost, this urgent announcement: Have you seen this man?

Oh that's right, he's in the press box. Shocking, really.

Okay, now that's out of the way, let cut to the chase, shall we? The Wings desperately need a win (/understatement); WInnipeg is coming off a hard-fought Gary's Gimmick win against the Sharts, and the Wings are coming off like, their Eleventeenth OT loss.

Babcock's benched his Golden Boy, and Franzen's back in to pick up - or unload more, who knows - the slack. Will the Wings be able to right the ship? Will Babcock club ALF over the head, put Cleary back in the number 11, and try to play it off like nothing ever happened? Will Ashton ever confess to being the father of Shandra's baby?

What (little) I do know, however, is that it's Business Time. Time for the boys to earn their paychecks. Time to show they belong.

Why? Because it's a Live Blog, bitches.

Cruise would score more often than Cleary even if playing in the NHL were like serving in Afghanistan.

... saaaaay, how do you feel about the 2010+ VAG CR TDI engines? As long as you’re not putting petrol in them, that is?

Diesels are for trucks to haul shit around. Never been a fan of automotive diesel.

I drove a turbo diesel Alfa for 10 days on vacation once. LOVED the torque. Loved the mileage. Hated Italian drivers.

I would love a diesel full size station wagon when it comes time for a new vehicle (hopefully that’s many years down the road)

I was a Holmstrom fan like the rest of us, but I don’t miss 2,000 waived goals per season and his 5,000 phantom penalty minutes.

Unless you go Mercedes, about the only other thing available is a VW Jetta Sportwagen.

Personally, I’m eyeballing a VW Golf TDI, 4-door, 6-speed manual, many, MANY more MPGs than I get presently.

Particularly on them. We are regularly doing $3-5k repair jobs at 60k-80k miles, because plastic pieces inside the intake manifolds breaking. Ya know, plastic parts that used to be made of metal, and lasted 300k miles.

Personal feerings aside, do you see many of them come through?

My feerings aboot the VAG diesels are that they are great engines, but what good is a 250k engine, when the tranny shits the bed at 120k, and the rest of the car crumbles into dust around it by 150k?

Oh, look, there is a hockey game on!
