Uh oh. Big, Bad, Boston.

Well, if there's going to be a legitimate "rival" in this division, this is it.  Toronto? No. It will be fun to see them get pasted and it will be particularly fun to hear their fans whimper.  Montreal, Florida, Tampa...blah, blah, blah.  That's just science.

Boston's it.  But not yet.  Not until a playoff series.  Until then, it's all just talk.  Like this...

We'll start with their city.

That's from the Stanley Cup of Chowder, a Boston blog of the SB Nation variety. That means it looks, sounds, smells just like every other SB Nation blog.

A few key words from this manifesto, the same as the ones you'll read on the SB Nation Blues, Dive, Duck, Predator blogs. Ready?

...no matter what I say about their decrepit, run-down city, Detroit fans will find some way to cry about it. But if you think about it - that is such the epitome of their fanbase. Hardly any of them actually LIVE in Detroit city limits (find a Red Wings fan. Ask them where they're from. I bet you anything they're from like Ann Arbor or Ypsilanti or any number of other non-Detroit Michigan locales that you can hear about in a variety of Sufjan Stevens songs) and yet they all leap to whine and cry at you if you dare to invoke the fact that the city might as well be a war zone.

We know. We do. We get it.  Detroit's run down. We're all bandwagoners. None of us live within the city limits. 

And the Wings have 11 Cups. And the Wings pose the most serious threat to Boston's perceived favorite status.  And the Wings play a style of hockey the Bruins are not comfortable with.

Got it.

And in case you're wondering whether I made up the fact that the Chowder blog is precisely like every other cookie cutter from SN Nation?

Never Forget:

Konstantinov, what a punk.

Creative.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

These Masshole announcers are being entirely too nice, too complimentary of our team, our coaches, and they just blew a bong load of smoke up Hollands ass.

I don’t like it one damn bit.

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.
