Abel to Yzerman

Only 47 Left…Let’s Live Blog Most Of Them

Saturday night? That was the first Lang fight.  The Stallion showed a glimpse of push-back the first twenty seconds and then he was overwhelmed by the sheer, animal strength of the hungry challenger.  Don't forget. Clubber Lang lived alone, trained alone, ate alone, washed alone, raised pigeons alone and said horrible things to Adrian at an event that was supposed to be Rocky's Big Day.

And then he laid waste to Balboa.  Demoralized him.  

Unlike Rocky III, perhaps the greatest true story in modern boxing history, I have little hope of a miracle.

Holy hell.  It wasn't just a "fail to compete," or a lot of lost "puck battles".  There was no competition and there was no battle.  That Blues team is really good.  And our Wings team is really, really mediocre.  Slow. We looked plodding compared to Clubber Lang.  

I offer you no hope for 12. Not now.  Not after that.  Mickey's dead.  Adrian's lost faith.  All is lost.  

Appollo?  We need you.  And bring that fat drunk Paulie with you. 

It's a Live Blog.  With BJs.

Hell, my pants are tight. I’ve been looking forward to this ever since I started watching the Griffins, what seems like months ago.

A bit of an update to the faithful…

It was a difficult time advertising wise during the lockout but things are picking up. We’ve upgraded our software, switched hosts, hopefully you see an increase in performance and have plans to add a few more bells and whistles in the upcoming month or so.

One thing that will be upgraded is the page numbers in the comments, right now you only see three numbers and if a post has, let’s say 15 pages of comments, it get kind of confusing at to how many pages there really are. This upgrade will be completed sometime this week so it should make it easier to navigate the comment pages when it is complete.

He plays in the mould of Stuart, though many don’t think he’ll be quite as good. Big body who isn’t afraid to hit, muck in the corners, and push people around; superb PKer; solid defensive, stay-at-home guy. Very poised under pressure and can make some snazzy outlet passes.

Of course, this is all in the AHL, so we’ve yet to see how it translates to the big time.

I have to admit, I REALLY like Lashoff, but this is the first year I’ve seen any of the prospects play… I liked him in the prospects games in previous years, however.

I might not be the best person to ask about prospects, but that’s my take.

Quincey is NOT any sort of defensive solution for this team, and I wouldn’t mind seeing him offloaded for picks at the deadline.

I’d take it—it’s either that or a buyout after the season.
