Any Wagers?

So…Uncle Mike was gonna leave big brother Cheli home, but now someone’s hurt so everyone’s together for the Hoedown at the Gay.  Who’s hurt?  Nobody’s sayin’.  Or, in the case of our Diggers, nobody’s askin’.


But a minor injury to an undisclosed player forced the team to bring Chelios on the trip. Babcock said after the morning skate that he wouldn’t know who’d be out on defense until just before the game.

“We’ll see who’s eligible and who’s not,’’ said Babcock, who wouldn’t reveal the injured player but said it’s not Nicklas Lidstrom.

It isn’t Meech or Brett Lebda, either, as they both skated during the optional practice.


We’re going to leave the Diggers alone for a second. I’m not going to dwell on the fact that they couldn’t get an answer out of Babcock. Why the break in routine?  Why do I go all gloves-off all of a sudden?

Because this is more fun.  That’s right, kids. Guess your injured Dman.

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.
