Bob Seger and his Silver Bullet Band are touring our nation. I've not yet seen a confirmed San Diego date. I will go scorched frigging earth if he hits the west coast, does Portland, NoCal and skips my transplanted home city.
Uncle Mike Babcock doesn't care. He doesn't care about Bullet Bob and he doesn't care about the calorie count in a Charleston Chew. He just doesn't. He doesn't care about hurting your feelings and he's not impressed by your roomate's cousin in St. Louis who keeps forwarding him pictures of the tattoo he has on his chest of Erik Estrada.
And Uncle Mike doesn't care if he's hurting Ian White's feelings. All our Uncle wants is a win, and then about 20 more. Then 16 after that.
So he's gonna sit a vet and then he and Kenny might trade one plus a kid or two.
Uncle Mike will spring for a Fresca and he'll tell Ansar how cool it was to watch you win a game of Boggle on the plane. But when it comes right down to it, he just wants to win and I'm pretty good with that.
I think something's brewing on that there horizon.
And Uncle Mike doesn't give two shits who it is that gets dealt if it means #12 becomes more of a possibility. No, I don't mean 13 or 40 so just stop. I mean a 51 or a 4, but never a 43. Ever. I don't even remember what number Quichedouchebag wears, because I shield my eyes instead of looking at him...but if we can trade him...YEP.
With every game this team wins without a healthy complement, Tick Tock is getting itchier. I know he's done exactly jack squat to make Detroy-et better but tonite he should be reminded that anyone can win in this league built by a parody-driven midget. Anyone. Even the Kings. Win, win, win...deal. Win, win, win...deal. Next thing you know Uncle Mike's got himself a contender.
We headed west because we felt that a change would do us good. Good for the soul, you know. Well, now it's time for a Live Blog, bitches.

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.
