Abel to Yzerman

The Chief let the lid off the big surprise this morning, and I’m happy to confirm the report:
The Emperor made me an offer I couldn’t refuse, and after an incredibly difficult decision-making process, I’m officially bringing my biased, unprofessional and verbose Red Wings coverage to Kukla’s Korner in mid-September. From the prospect camp coverage onward, I hope to bring the same level of inordinate post-counts and roughly-translated Swedish that you’ve come to expect on Snapshots into the as-yet-unnamed blog (suggestions for names/banners are welcome), and I couldn’t be happier to join the ever-expanding reach of the hardest-working blogger in the business in Paul Kukla.
MLive gave me my start and stuck with me for four-and-a-half years, and I can’t say enough good things about their kindness and patience with a still-raw blogger, but it’s time to move on and there was only one choice to make once Paul offered me the chance to join KK, especially given that there’s a fantastic community here that’s fitting the bill for my trip to Traverse City (and we’re 2/3rds of the way to signed/sealed/delivered already!).
As Paul stated this morning, KK will be adding more bloggers to the mix and the revised KK will allow members to filter their coverage, so there’s no need to fear a Red Wings overload.
In all seriousness, I’ve got a lot to live up working under The Emperor and The Chief, so I can only hope that this is the start of an inordinate amount of hard work and an opportunity to grow on an as-earned basis. I’m excited and admittedly a little overwhelmed by the move but it’s time to take a big leap and grow in the process.

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.
