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.

Ref just assuming if it’s him there is not a scoring opportunity.

Can’t blame him for that.

Franzen got saddled with a quick -1 by stepping on the ice for Zetterberg just as the rush went past him into the Detroit zone.

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.
Posted by RedMenace from Team Slovaskimo Fighting Snipers on 11/12/13 at 07:46 PM ET

Merc only sell the E class diesel in sedan form. Only E wagon sold in US is 350 4matic. I don’t really need AWD here in sunny SoCal. (Though I hear the E63 AMG wagon is still available as a special order, unless I hit the Powerball, that ain’t happening.)

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.
