Abel to Yzerman

Total Wingaholics

I have to believe that everyone who joins in an LB this season knows the likely outcome of the game on any given night. Going forward into the rest of the season with barely any expectations is the best way to proceed. It's not a knock on the Wings. It's just reality, and that's alright. It has been many, many years since the team has been in this spot, but, we're still here, never wavering. There is a nice balance here at A2Y of old timers and younger fans too. That makes for a nice mixture of good fans and total Wingaholics. 

It's an early evening Live Blog!

Well they’ve improved since Toronto game, took 3 minutes for the opponent to get a one on zero breakaway and score 5-hole.

If you are not watching, Todd Bertuzzi doing the intermission talk, says he wants to see the Wings finish their chedks and play a little more physical.

Hire the guy!

He wants to see the Wings finish their checks and play a little more physical. - I agree the Wings should be called Charmin they are so soft.

Happy Friday! Philly fans are an awful bunch. I lived there for 13 years and braved my way through many sporting events, moving right through mouthy, obnoxious fans. No class in any venue there… Just sayin…..

On the other end of the continuum, I was at Bell Centre last night. First class all the way around.

I had to drive around a bit during that period, I like play by play guys, but Paul Woods quick color comments made me squeamish.

“No goals but Franz Nielsen is an effective NHL player.”
“Andreas Athenasiou one of the most dangerous players in the National Hockey League.”
“.. Glendening one of the hardest players to play against in the National Hockey League.”

With these comments by Paul Woods you’d think the Wings should be contending for a Division first place at least.

From 1-2 to 1-5 in less than 2 minutes.  I’m at a loss for words.

DRD they should do their goalies a favor out of respect at this point in the game anyway.

Hola 19. Just got in from the mountains and now realizing this game has started. Unfortunately the Wings appear to be late also.

but Paul Woods quick color comments made me squeamish.

I loved Woods as a player. He was a heart and soul guy. I guess I even liked him as Bruce Martyn’s partner, but a few years ago I just had to stop listening to the radio broadcast because I found Woods monotone voice and team friendly critique of the wings too much.

I do like Ken Kal

Yeah DRD I hear ya. That’s the reason I got rid of XFM. Too much following the corporate line instead getting getting an honest point of view from the broadcasters.

I can get over his over enthusiastic homerisms but I detest how he babbles on and and on and speaks over Ken Kal all the time. He needs to shut the F up! And call the game. And he always goes on about stats for everyone and anyone if they are playing in the game or not he is supposed to be calling.

Hi all! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Sorry to be negative.
