Abel to Yzerman

Back To Winslow

Aloha.  Thanks to Paul for filling in with the LBs and welcome to Red Menace who's assumed the title of GDT Czar.

Quite the coincidence the other night.  2 minutes and change into the game and one of scumbag Patty's henchmen drills Kronwall from behind.  Right off the hop, eh Twitchy? Incidental, I'm sure.  The only thing missing was Lemieux's 22 and the side boards.  

Aside from Kronwall's "minor concussion", all is looking up. Helm is skating in GR. Howard's back but the big boy did well in his absence.  Your boy Alfredsson is on fire, so is your long-time boy Pavel. Health is decent. Uncle Mike is happy. He's got plenty to tinker with and we have little to complain about...so far.

The East is...winnable.  

8 games in and I'm, naturally, highly optimistic.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Ugh! I hate these left coast late rivalry engagements; same time (ish) as the Tigers late night game.

Evening Bitches!

LG Olympia Ent!

...we have little to complain about…

Sammy is in while Tatar sits in the press box – again. So I’m afraid I have to disagree with your statement, Master Chief.

Evenin Bitches. Nice to have you back at the helm, Chief.

I was standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona, and such a fine sight to see. On my way back East, ended up in Pennsylvania, than was in 2003.

Let’s Roll!

My wife said she couldn’t believe from that reaction that they were in Phoenix.  Her only clue was no goal horn.
