More From The MSM

If you guys are getting tired of me pointing you to the mainstream predictions, say so.  I’ll keep it up for another day just to irritate you than let is slowly fade away like it was my own idea.  In the meantime, here are a few more.

Provincial Awakening

Updated 1836 CSTThe Real Deal (see below) is taking a staggered approach to their analysis.  I know it’s early, but I’m finding the Calgary bloggers to be a different animal than their Oil counterparts.  A little less sarcasm, a little more analysis. 

The Flames bloggers are slowly recovering from a regular season rollercoaster.  A few days to drink their stress away and they’re ready for some analysis.  Metrognome at Five Hole Fanatics breaks down the Wing/Calgary first rounder.

Latest Word On Bert: Don’t Expect Him Thursday

Lots of conflicting reports on Bertuzzi the last 48 hours.  Here’s the latest, if you haven’t heard yet.  Ken Holland on WDFN today said that Bertuzzi skated last Friday and felt good, then began showing symptoms of a concussion.  He didn’t practice again today, and Wings management isn’t anticipating his availability for Game 1.

Bruce MacLeod’s Red Wing Corner

In my mind, he’s not available at this point,” said coach Mike Babcock. Mikael Samuelsson has been practicing in Bertuzzi’s spot on Robert Lang’s line.

For the FNG’s…An Introduction To The Wing Blogosphere

I’m guessing, based on past playoff adventures, that we’ll be seeing some new visitors to A2Y.  Flame fans, we welcome you as we welcomed your provincial pals last year.  I offer none of the “trolls stay away” admonitions.  If you’re a troll, I could care less.  Trolls don’t scare me anymore.  I used to be frightened because they hid under my bed and ate oreo’s, keeping me awake until my 23rd birthday.  But they’re gone and that makes me happy.

Most Important Game 1…ever?

Probably because we’ve walked the same Olongapo back alleys, O-Joe and I agree completely on just how critical a Game 1 win is to the Wings. He made some great points in the comment section of a post below and I wanted to give them a bit more prominence.

Back To Back Headache

Updated: Ottawa and Pittsburgh play back to back in Games 2 and 3.  Thanks, Johne.

If the Thrashers and Rangers go seven games, they’ll play on consecutive nights the final two.  Other than that series, no other matchup will feature back-to-back games.

Except, of course, for Detroit and Calgary…games five and six.  And does anyone doubt this series will go at least six games?

Deep Diggers Unite:  All Agree Zetterberg Ready

Despite blog entries yesterday that looked like the three diggers spoke to Mike Babcock from three different continents, they met over latte last night and conspired to conform.  Their stories are heartwarming in their similarity this morning.

Predicting The Mainstream Is Too Easy

The usual suspects are all chiming in, predicting the Wing demise.  Strachan and Montgomery today.  Proteau and Campbell yesterday.  More will surely follow as we get closer to Game 1.  John Buccigross is today’s only dissenter.

Prepare To Defend Thyself Hockeytown

We’re going to be hearing about this story today, and most likely all week.  It’s not new to you, but our dirty little secret is out there now.  Wing tickets, even playoff tickets, are not exactly difficult to come by.

As a matter of fact, they’re embarrassingly available.
Behind The Jersey mentioned it a week ago, and the Detroit News caught up last night.

It’s Only Monday?

Long, long, long frigging week.  In case you’d forgotten, here are a few items to worry about:  Zetterberg’s health, Bertuzzi’s health, Mike Babcock’s ability to adapt and the true terror of another early loss.  A few items for you to consider as Stress-Ex 2007 grows nearer.

First: the deep diggers are busy, but not exactly unified.  Everyone was at the media avail today, but they all seem to come away with different interpretations

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
