Abel to Yzerman

Do you know the way…

... to the Eastern Conference? It seems like the NHL's "Top Men" have done their best to make the Wings think they're still in the West.

At least this time they've come to us - and that's a good thing, right? What's that? The Sharks are 7-0-1, with a +23 goal differential? They're 9-2-1 vs. the Wings in the last 12 games? There's only TWO defensemen playing for Detroit tonight that have more than a half-season of NHL hockey under their belts?

Well, at least Tatar's getting into the game, and NHL's The Wheel of Justice gave Cody McLeod 5 games for trying to pop Kronner's head like a zit on prom night... that's... well, that's something to be hap... yeah, I can't even get excited over that. This will likely be a massacre, and Cleary will still play "realgud" regardless of how many times he trips over the his own feet.

This is RedMenace filling in for The Master Chief... hide the pets and pepper your angus. It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Logan Couture, the only player in the league that makes Crosby look manly

Less girly maybe but manly?  Nah.

hate to beat a dead horse, but if they just keep dumping the puck in, they might as well give it up and go home.  They don’t have the speed or the big bodies to win that battle.

TOOTOO is making it damn difficult to waive him off the roster when Helm comes back healthy.

Yes indeed, because of Sammy’s veteran salary only dropping 100,000 off the cap.

Well the sharks have the best record in the league and we are missing our top two defenseman, so it is not a bad night so far at 0-0.

if Abbie is going to stay on that top line, someone needs to teach him how to shoot.  He gets a ton of chances because of his hard work (and Pav), but can’t put any on net

It’s nice we’ve held them off this long, but there has to be a concerted effort to get the puck on net in these last 20. We aren’t going to win with shots on goal coming so few and far between.

You musta missed the part where they talked about him being moved to center tonight.  That was about a minute into the game.  So his name definitely came up then.  Since then, not so much.

I’m sure I need some sort of alcohol hit but I don’t know which way to go.  The only thing I’m ruling out tonight is cerveza.

Go buy some Fireball cinnamon whisky.

Go buy some Redd’s Apple Ale.

Pour 2 fingers of Fireball into a pint glass, and then an entire 12oz. bottle of the Redd’s.

Enjoy your alcoholic apple pie.

I stole this from someone else, but don’t tell.

“What about a Sharks Delay-of-Game Puck-over-the-Glass by a Defenseman whose upwards-swing High-Sticks and cuts a Red Wing… is that 6:00?”

Heh, I don’t know if I should really try to answer that, but I think it would be 2:00 of 5-on-3, then another 2:00 of 5-on-4.

I don’t know why, but I’m going to stick with that.
