Abel to Yzerman

The Old Cook Is wavering…unsure if he should feed us

We've been holding back the Lightfoot, saving Gordie for when the time is exactly right.

Well, the time is right. In a musty old hall in Detroyet we pray because this is a biggie.

It's a live blog, bitches. And, yes, your pets have lived long and you've loved them well. Time to, you know, take one for the team.

that couldn’t have been a penalty shot, as Nyquist didn’t have the puck.

in fact, he never touched it.


It was actually Hiller himself who put it on a tee for Brunner—but fuch it, I’ll take it.

Nike now responsible for two OT winners.

57.3 Penalty Shot - When a player, in the neutral or attacking zone, in control of the puck (or who could have obtained possession and control of the puck) and having no other opponent to pass than the goalkeeper, is tripped or otherwise fouled from behind, thus preventing a reasonable scoring opportunity, a penalty shot shall be awarded to the non-offending side.

I watched on FSD on vipbox and I no longer give a shit about NBC’s talking heads…unless it’s Dave Strader and/or Ken Daniels.

I posted a week ago that I thought if Helm’s back is irreparable then Nyquist could be captain. His attitude is second to none.

Isn’t the captain talk a bit premature? Doesn’t Z still have like 15 years left on his contract?

Calm down, all of you.  We had Abdelkader as a future captain material a few years ago.

So, elephant in the room…

Why did Brunner get so little icetime?  Punishment?  Is he banged up?
