Abel to Yzerman


I’m hoping everyone is doing well. It’s been a long time since we’ve watched a game together. Even in what was the worst of seasons, what I wouldn’t now give to go back to those days. Some of us have time on our hands now, which is a real blessing, still being here. Staying above the mental fray, and, trying to keep a good perspective can sometimes be a bit tough to do.
Once in a while I think of the good old days when we would all meet up in the Hasek to enjoy a game.
It was always crowded and the Hasek was redolent with the smell of cheap beer and good rum. Good times... We’re a tough crowd, so, hang in there, look forward, and keep the faith.

Hola Kate, thanks for catching up.  It’s an odd year and situation everywhere.

As the new Seattle GM finishes his expansion draft picks it would be called “Fill my Kracken”.

While there is awood40, did y’all know he has another channel?  It’s awood CHV.

Check it out.

Yes, classic hockey videos.

awood40 is a great way to lose track of an entire month watching videos.

Hi Kate, glad to see you’re still in the mix and haven’t gone full Shining.  Strange times indeed with life on the pause button - but when it’s all over we know Larkin will be back to fast-forward.

Good day to all. I just want to check up on y’all and try to keep the A2Y spirit in tact during these strange and unfamiliar times we are all living in right now. Heads above water and all that.  wink

And thank you RWBill, for keeping things “ah-Kracken” around here.  wink

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.
