The same blank-eyed, slack-jawed message that Blashill has been sending for several years. Roughly translated, it goes like this: Derrrrrrrp.

I’m glad to see you are as annoyed as I am about this strange promotion of a player who wasn’t performing.

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.
