Abel to Yzerman

A Lot of People Don’t Like the Road…

... but the Red Wings didn't seem to mind it too terribly, winning three out of four games on their Western Canadia trip. Not too shabby, right?

Normally I'd agree with myself here; unfortunately, they got thoroughly trounced by a questionable - yet unsurprisingly highly motivated - Winnipeg Jets club to end the trip on a sour note. Now the Wings are back home for the next four, and will play a couple of strong teams in the "Steve Yzerman presents 'The Tampa Bay Lightning' " and the Washington "Which Ovechkin Will Show Up Tonight?" Capitals.

Oh, and the Atlanta Winnipeg Jets again.

But one game at a time, one game at a time. Tonight's foes are (or "foe is?" Stupid English...) the Dallas Stars, helmed by new GM, and former "Lobe of the Braintrust," Jim Nill. Here's a conundrum for you - a riddle, if you will: What would Jim Nill do with the current Wings roster? Would Daniel Cleary taking up valuable roster (and cap) space? Would Mikael Samuelsson be available to crank countless slappers into the midsections of NHL goalies from terrible angles, then be a healthy scratch for five games in a row? Would Jordin Tootoo have been waived, deported to Canada, and then subsequently returned due to that country's refusal to accept him (or maybe he just cleared waivers, I'm not really clear on that part)?

Hey Toots, since you'll (unfortunately) be in the press box, drop on by and join the fun here in the "Abel to Yzerman" wing of The Emperor's manor - it is a Live Blog, after all.

Bitches.

Saw this in Malik’s pregame in reference to Sammy.

[quotehis “no-trade clause” means that he can submit a list of 8-12 teams to which he will not be traded, but he can be moved]

Can anyone confirm this??

Hi-Dee-Ho-Style, Bitches. Thanks Red. You’re running the nut house tonite. Time to change the trend and win one on home ice for the Fans. And, of course, for the 19.

Let’s Roll.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Running it? Nah.

I can’t even begin to try to hold a candle to The Chief, VooX, or Malik when it comes to writing, so I just stumble through as best I can.

Making sure someone covers up the piss, vomit, and other bodily fluids with an expensive-looking rug when it’s all said and done? That’s more like it.

I believe Malik knows his stuff. So, we can hope someone, anyone, would take Sammy, because, we can’t take it anymore.

I finally got GameCenter working on my computer.  It is weird to be watching a game and hanging out with you guys after what feels like so long, but at the same time it feels totally natural.
