Abel to Yzerman

Scary Times

Sometimes, on days like today, when the neighborhood kids are running around bloated and sugar-amped on Charleston Chews, I like to pretend my friend Willy Wonka is wobbling the streets handing out candy and wishes, along with half-off coupons to down river strip clubs where the fire trucks park on hot days and the puppies frolic without cares in the world.

Holidays are for dreaming. Halloween is for pretend games. Well, I've got a dream and I pretend a lot. 

Ready?

This site, MyNHLTradeRumors, had a little ditty in it yesterday about a certain former Captain returning home to the bosom he nestled in across three decades.

It's a rumor site and there is nothing of substance in there, but the thought made me feel warm on this crisp 64 degree Florida night.

Do I believe Steve Yzerman would come "home" to Detroit? Yes.

Do I believe the Wings will shit can the worst GM in hockey, thereby opening an avenue for that return? No.

Is it something to consider for the distant future? Probably.

Are the Wings playing tonight? Yes.

Are you enjoying this interrogation? Me either. 

Stupid.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Happy Halloween, LGRW and FKHASAP.

FKHASP but with the ahhh 9 ( shudder wince FUIRMA ) NTC he has marked his territory.

Green/Mrazek =$10M but even if the kids take a one year contract and split the 10M it gives us precious little cap room.

So how do we depose his long term mess and him?

Purple Gang and the wet side of the Joe?

Just wanted to clear that up… didn’t want you to think I’m dumber than I actually am.

I don’t know if I get that reference, but I’ll take your word for it. wink

It’s just MHO but I’d offer Mrazk or Jimmah along with AA for Ekman-Larsson and Coyotes 1st rounder this upcoming draft.

I’ve actually done a few Armchair GM scenarios on Capfriendly like that; sending Mrazek, Ouellet/Jensen, and a pick for OEL.

But I’m no GM.

They’ve got some decent pieces - especially on the back end - but injuries have absolutely destroyed any potential they had.
