Abel to Yzerman

I NOW Consider Luke Glendening A Hall of Famer

Multi-year deal. About 660 per year. No career goals. A fourth liner with no offensive ability. A mucker, grinder, whatever you want to call him.

And exactly the kind of player this team has signed for years to provide tough minutes against certain players.

Like who?

They get Datsyuk back this week probably. God help us.

There's a hint. A comment from Pens Blog on a post pointing to a likely first rounder between Detroit and Pittsburgh. A matchup they're not exactly thrilled with. 

Back on topic, would you expect to see Glendening covering Rosby, exclusively, like Hank did in '08? Not yet. Not this year.  Maybe.  But we all know he gets whiny when teams dare to play him tight.  It's a possibility. 

I'm back for my fifth consecutive game, and it will be our fifth consecutive win. I've decreed it.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

There he is.  The Craic will flow and the Stress Train will be pulling up any minute now.  Thanks, Chief.

I like the signing. Luke is doing exactly what he needs to do. And he NEVER coasts.

And I like that the Chief is here again. These two points are ours.

LGRW!!!!!

Go Wings.

Here we go!!!! The Wings are serving up another signature (second really) late season run into the playoffs.

And I hope those glittered turds in Pitt are starting to feel their signature (and many more) meltdown brewing. I want that matchup actually. Class V. ass…... it would be an early easter basket for me to see those no talent ass clowns dispatched in the first. Oh man, the look on crysby’s face like his depends just sprung a leak would be instant gold I tell ya.

Go Wings!

Spent a few hours at the ballpark today watching the kiddos team win out on a double header and headed back for another tomorrow.  A Wings win would make today a complete success.
Go Wings.

Thanks Chief.  Probably won’t make the LB tonight, going to be watching on time delay since we have company coming over.  It’s been great to have you back, an added bonus seems to be the luck you’ve brought.

Let’s go Red Wings!

Honoring Olympians?  The Habs not had a home game since the Olympics to take care of that?

And its a Wings game, so we should assume they’ll stop playing around 9:00.

Evening Bitches. I guess these Canucks are going to keep honoring the Olympics athletes cause they are only going to have 1 Canadian team make the playoffs. LGRW

Cindy Crysby, the most hated player in the NHL. Would love to see the Red Wings knock him out in the first round.

I would say that Glendenning earned $10,000 of his contract on that shift alone.

Was about to comment on the Wings losing the puck in the neutral zone or just inside the o-zone way too often…..and it bites them in the ass.
