Frigging Yawn…See This One Coming?

About as predictable as it gets.  Dive “fans” will now claim that Detroit’s re-signing of Todd Bertuzzi will “re-ignite” the rivalry.  I typically avoid these Examiner pieces, mostly because they’re garbage, but I couldn’t turn away from this one.

But, but, but, but, but, but, think of the animosity this signing brings to a dying rivalry. In one fell swoop and with one vicious cheap shot, Bertuzzi ended Steve Moore’s career and established himself as the most reviled athlete in the history of Denver sports. Now he’s signed with a team that was once the Avs’ arch nemesis. This is sheer brilliance, the one ember that could fan the flames of acrimony that made Avs-Wings games sanctioned blood sport.

You might want to ice a team that doesn’t, you know, suck?  That might help “re-ignite the rivalry.”  Just throwing that out there.

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.
