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.

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

Posted by Ducksworth from Brownstown, MI on 01/25/12 at 07:21 PM ET

I agree.. I think he’d fit in well too.

Nate, if you have NHLN, they’ll replay it later tonight.  I do not know if they’ll replay it on NBCSN.

And maybe NHLVideo will upload it to their youtube account.

  Damn, missed NHL36. Have to find a replay at some point.

Don’t forget the Jergens and Kleenex.  It was that good.

Butter and the “guest towels”

Unless you want to get the dog REALLY interested, make sure it’s not one of those “flavored” butters…

... what?  No, I’ve NEVER accidentally done that, why do you ask?

Love Dave Strader.  The man’s got the voice to elevate the hype of the game into an even higher level.

Let’s shoot it, boys!

I guess I can deal with Strader. I hope Douche-canoe took Uncle Mike’s message to heart the other nite.

Hey! No sidebar. Anyone else notice?
