Early Returns: Fire On Ice Sucks and Sucks Hard

“Fire On Ice”, the slick marketing tool and logo design for the Wings’ ‘07-‘08 season, has elicited quite the response from A2Y readers since we posted it here yesterday.  Featuring a pinkish hue, empty JLA seats and all the indicators of a power point presentation designed 6 minutes before the meeting starts, it would appear that—once again—the Wing communications/advertising romper room has failed.

But we’re all about presenting solutions when we see problems.  Evidence?  This.

Solution:  A contest.

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. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
