Abel to Yzerman

Good Day, Mr I.  Now Keep It Going. We’ll Even Live Blog It For You.

Hey St. Louis, weren’t you in the running for Prince Fielder?  Gosh. Just not your best week.

It’s relevant because Mr. I’s a Wing, and he’s a Tiger.  Mike Ilitch had himself a day like he used to have back before Gary Bettman ruined the NHL with his idiocy, his Cap that doesn’t work, a lockout that accomplished nothing and the Streisand wardrobe he wears in private consultations with Brian Burke.

I can’t confirm that so, for the sake of the Empire, I take it back.  That last part.

Honestly, this day has tired me out.

It’s an Original 6 classic, one that should occur four times per year. That could have happened up until three weeks ago, when Gary killed the realignment. Oh yes he did. 

Hockey’s best team, guided and molded by hockey’s greatest coach, led by the best defenseman in hockey history and backstopped by the best goalie on earth, plow into Montreal and in honor of the occasion…

...It’s a Live Blog, bitches.

Lidstrom is out tonight with the flu. Maybe he’s attempting to preempt Gary from suspending for deciding not to be a part of his sideshow.

Thanks, Chief. So St. Lose lost again?  I didn’t know they were after Fielder. That’s great.

No Captain tonight. Should make the rest of the team motivated and focused.

No FSD feed tonight. Stuck with OLczykN. :(

But watch their show about our Captain at 6:30 everyone.

LET’S GO RED WINGS !!!!!

You have been on fire today, Chief, well done you sexy Raspberry.

It must be nice to be deployed and have all the time to blog and torment the rest of the NHL.  Maybe I should get a job aboard a ship, as I don’t even have time to wipe my own arse these days trying to make ends meet.

Bar is open, feel free to imbibe everything in stock as we will be re-supplying during Li’l Gary’s Ass.G.  I have a series of meetings this evening of a serious and non-redolent nature and will miss yet another Wings game with you bitches.

Oh, in case your wondering, I have installed a tap that will dispense Turpentine, Nyquil, and Codeine cocktails in the Hasek until you feel no more.

Though it feels very strange to know that TPH is not playing.  My brain can’t compute it.

I learned a couple of things from this site today:

1) If you don’t agree with some people, you’re stupid;

2) I’m stupid—not to mention pathetic—for having a differing opinion;

3) I shouldn’t try to express my opinion because I’m too stupid to back it up; I’ll just continue breathing through my mouth and drooling uncontrollably.

Let’s blog this shit up…. derp.

but I actually worry that the interview is what caused Paul (the Emperor) to be dropped as an NHL blogger just a week or so before the 2010 season began.

I thought it was the 19 and I asked the Emperor earlier this season. He said no it was not.

The way it went down was sooooooooooo unprofessional and Gary-esque. 

Thanks, Gary. Ass.

Watch out for this club Wings.  They really have got their house in order.

RedMenace…..I guess you’re talking about me?  I guess that is a lot easier than going back to that thread and actually countering my points. 
(Does anyone else have a big problem with calling something stupid, if you think it is?). 
You see man, now you really have broken the code.  This place is for hockey.  That other site is for politics.  Now everyone will blame me.
(ps, your patheticness is due to the nature of your opinion, not the fact that it is differing.)
  If you have any balls, talk to me about on that other thread, or privately, so that these fine folks can enjoy what will likely be such a merciless beat down that Price will demand a trade.

Just based on that small snippet of Babs ducking out of the camera, I’m guessing he’s gonna hate HBO.

HBO is the last thing that any fan should want near their hockey team; I think the circus really helped the Caps speed up their inevitable meltdown.

Um, you totally just called yourself out there, bro—I was simply making a statement regarding what I’d learned today, and didn’t name any names.

“Broken the code?”  *#$%@& off… are you serious?  Forgive me, Mighty Brain God, for I did not mean to anger you.  Please, accept my offering of this pile of jack shit to appease your bruised sensibilities.  I’m not going to engage in a battle of wits with you because I’m obviously intellectually inferior; feel free to ignore me for the rest of your life.

Regarding the trade deadline…I think Tuomo Ruutu would fit in nicely here.
