Abel to Yzerman

Don’t Scare The Baby

My granddaughter, all eleven months of her, is in my lap as I write this. So, forgive me, but I'm changing the tone.

I can't have her introduced to this way of life in an honest fashion. 

I can't have her start this way.

Ken Holland will continue to thrive.

Jeff Blashill is everything we hoped. 

Henrik Zetterberg's final 8 years as a Red Wing have not been wasted. 

Chris Osgood is in the Hall of Fame.

Steve Yzerman is ready to move up and will do so next year when Holland ceremoniously says goodbye.

The trade deadline is approaching and the Wings will solidify their position as the top team in the East and start a run toward continued health and rightful dominance in the playoffs.

So, little Kenley, my littlest Wing fan and most intelligent, adorable granddaughter in the history of genetics, you're becoming a Wing fan as many of the other 19 did, amidst glory and brilliance.

It's a live blog, friends. A gentle live blog filled with warm milk and a Kermit stuffed animal, promises of parades and puppies and fire trucks and Charleston Chews for everyone.

And hookers. 

Sorry.

LGRW, FKHASAP.

As frustrated as I’ve been watching Wings games this year, watching Hawks fans watch Hawks games has been enjoyable.

Mantha is going to have a chronic “nagging ” until he starts playing like he’s an NHL’er he is supposed to be.

So that’s what it takes for the Wings to get an interference call.

No better evidence of parity in the NHL when a expansion team is leading the western division at almost the half season. Just sayin

I had been wondering early in the game if Tatar had been playing every game lately because he’s been fairly invisible, then he had that turnover to remind me he’s still playing.
