Digger…Departing

Teddy Kulfan coined a phrase.  He was the first Deep Digger Captain.  Fifty years from now when A2Y is finally acknowledged as the greatest blog ever invented anywhere on any internet, he will be given credit as one of the inspirations.

But he’s a former Digger now. 

And here’s how it went down.  An Abel to Yzerman Deep Digger Departing Exclusive.

Shake Up In The Ranks? Dig It

Update: It’s been 131 minutes since we posted this alert, and the response has been insane.  Emails, phone calls, telegraphs.  Hockeytown is an an uproar and I’m feeling the pressure to break this one wide open.  I’m resisting.  Until 0900 EST.
——- 
The A2Y Investigative Squad, our interns from Ferris State, have broken another one. 

Word has leaked that one of our Diggers is a Digger no more.

Which one?

Oh….So You Want A Little Friction?

Yes, by god. I know.  I know it’s late July and I really know the hockey world has come to a complete stop waiting for TO’s Diva to make up her mind.  The only thing we know about Mats Sundin is that he really doesn’t care all that much about winning a Cup.  The rest?  Doesn’t matter to much to me.  Vancouver, Toronto, New York…doesn’t matter.

If he’d signed with Montreal by now?  Yeah, that would be a statement.  Now? I really don’t care. Pick a spot. Don’t.  Stay in Sweden. Whatever.

Meanwhile, I’ve got a ditty for you.

Holland: Hank Priority Number 1

Tick Tock Kenny, appearing with Stoney and Wojo on WDFN, re-re-confirmed that Downey and Mac have both been offered 2-way deals.  Also said his priorities are Zetterberg, then Franzen.  Hoping each of them “buy into the Wings’ system”.  In other words, take less to prolong the Dynasty.  Sounds good to me.

League Office: Fans Not Allowed To Attend Winter Classic

Little Gary is nailing this one. I mean he’s drilling it.  Drilling down and drilling deep as only Mini-Stern can. 

I wasn’t at the presser today, but here’s the one I held in my noggin.

Will there be a Winter Classic Gary? “Yes.”
Where? “Chicago.”

Speaking Of The KHL…

It would look like Mark Hartigan’s got himself a cozy new home.

As posted at LGW, Latvia appears to be the destination.

Ummm. Hello? Do We Have An Asst. Coach Or Not?

Screw it. I’ll run the power play.

We’ve got one guy in Atlanta saying McCrimmon’s been hired.  A guy in Michigan agreeing.  Another guy in Atlanta confirming.  And a bunch of Diggers in Detroit riding the fence.

Ho frigging hum.

Back To Annandale? Negative. Not Gonna Happen.

Steely Dan carried me the last four miles to work this morning.  Donald Fagen advocates a California tumble into the Pacific.  Whatever. Nothing a little glue stick can’t fix. 

Meanwhile, we have issues to address.

You Got A Schedule?  How ‘Bout Some Venom To Go With It?

Good morning. How are you?  Summer going well?  Mine would be, if not for two factors.

I’m a guy so I refused to ask for assistance the first time I loaded my boat on a trailer from the water.  Also decided not to (a) ask for help, (b) read any material whatsoever that would have given me hints how to do it, (c) remember to lift the motor.  So that was cool.

Oh, and I also watched 44 minutes of an infommercial about Time/Life’s Soft Rock Classics of the 70’s.  I know.  But I couldn’t…stop…watching.  Seals and Croft’s timeless classic “Summer Breeze” lured me in, followed by hit after soft rock hit, including Dr. Hook’s “When You’re In Love With a Beautiful Woman.”

About Abel to Yzerman

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. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
