Abel to Yzerman

Vacation’s Over, Boys…

Now it's time to get back to work.

I'm going to keep this short: The Wings are struggling; the Panthers have won seven of their last ten, and the Wings... well, the Wings haven't. However, Zetterman and Ankletaper are back, Babbles has finally had the epihpany to break up the Blundertwins, and hey, it's a road game.

That's gotta be a good thing, right?

Yeah, I didn't think so.

Anyway, sit back, relax, and enjoy a nice, refreshing Live Blog, Bitches.

Gus with the Hasek-esque adventures in goaltending.  Nice!

Even if the Wings win they can’t expect to play rag-tag hockey and be successful.

Holland should be dragged out and shot for what he’s let this defense become.  We can only hope that the draftees that Nill left us can right the ship in the future.

I was enjoying the lower blood pressure after Hasek moved on. Guess I need to tell my doc to up my blood pressure meds again. Smith isn’t a scorer or goalie, but he has a goal and a save tonight. Geez.

Uh no, been stated by both several times that Nill dealt with the draft and the farm team, while Kenny deals with the day to day of the big club.  But thanks for trolling

Jesus, not even Quincey’s high sticking penalties are understandable.

Have to say, the Florida announcers aren’t horrible.  That could still change though.

Wow, I love the way DeKeyser placed his stick there. That happened so fast, that shows how deep his defensive instincts are.

I haven’t seen defense like this since the Harold Snepts days.

Wasn’t trolling. Just have a different opinion than you.

Posted by some kid on 12/28/13 at 09:24 PM ET

When every post prior has been snarky retort to someone elses post, it looks like trolling

Defense is a lot better with Quincy in the box.

I love Ozzie. He was great for a post game quote. So I don’t understand why he sucks so much as a color guy.

Florida announcers seem shocked by the amount & size of rebounds Gus gives up. Must be their first time watching hockey.

Posted by some kid on 12/28/13 at 09:20 PM ET

You just sound like a broken record… I know you hate when Gus is winning games.

Do you want me to copy and paste every single post I’ve made tonight, or do you want to just keep making stuff up? Where are you coming up with this all of a sudden?

Whatever will end this conversation so I can enjoy hockey, go for it

I think he’s a bit nervous. He has his good moments when he is more relaxed. On the job training.

I will always be loyal to Ozzie.
