Marty…We’re Not Kidding.  Put The “V” Away.

Dude.  You gave up like 11 goals to the Wings last week.  Enough is enough.

Put the V away.  And to all you transplants out west?  Good on ya.

It also doesn’t hurt that many ex-patriot Michiganders make their homes in some of those opposing towns. “It helps,” Osgood said. “In San Jose, they don’t like us there and it’s the same in Dallas, but there’s a lot of (Wings) fans in Anaheim and L.A. and especially in Phoenix, which just makes it fun and enjoyable for us to play. We enjoy the support and we want to perform well, because they only get a chance to see us once or twice a year.”

Taking Aim At The Delicate Genius

Those of you who may be new to the ever-evolving A2Y scene may not recognize the glossary entry, “The Delicate Genius.”  Like everything else in the glossary, that phrase is one of my favorites.  Don’t bother clicking because I’m gonna show you what it says anyway. I’m that kind of guy, and we have a point to make. Oh yes we do.

You Want Grades?  Don’t Look Here.

Halfway through the season (regular) and the Diggers are in “mid-season review” mode.  Always an exciting time of year. So creative.  So…scholarly.

Oh, yes.  You know the “grades” are in.  An A- for Lidstrom and a C for Drapes and a C for Osgood, because Hahn cuts anyone off who grades Ozzie lower than that.

Hosting The Live Blog…Literally

Well, we were gonna try and hook this thing up at a local establishment but it’s raining and here and that often confuses me.

So our world traveler, Andrew, is aboard the metro as we speak headed this way.  I’ll be picking him up, stopping at the Yuengling store and it’s back here to A2Y HQ to watch the game.

Red Wings’ New Year’s Resolution:  Kick Everyone’s Ass

Updated 1545 with Steve Ott and Nik Kronwall exchanging friendship bracelets below.

———

One.  Few bloggers have the courage to go that nuts with apostrophes in the post title.  I’m just sayin’.

Two. I’ve looked at the remainder of the schedule and decided the Wings probably won’t lose again.

Marty?  This Is A Family Live Blog.  Don’t Show Us Your “V”.

Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News says the Stars need a new backup goalie.

He says there are several to choose from.

Including?

Manny Legace, making $2.15 million this season in St. Louis, but a UFA at year’s end (He’s 1-5-1 with a 3.93 GAA and .849 save percentage).

Awesome.

Anniversary Flashback:  29 Days In Hell

“You’ve, well, pretty much sucked.”

“You’ve cursed our Wings, but you’re almost gone you frigging bastard.”

“Some will say, though, that you’ve had value, that you’ve made this team tougher, more resilient.  I happen to disagree.”

What?  Two consecutive days of Legace flashbacks?

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
