Well, well, well…when your team has no chance of making the playoffs, set your sights on the Wings. That’s the MO of Blues apologist and Klessel groupie Andy Strickland. Last year it was his prediction that the Wing room would “implode by Christmas.”
Now? Well now his “sources” are telling him Nick Lidstrom is going to be out longer than announced. Much longer.
Don’t believe the Red Wings when they say Nicklas Lidstrom is set to return in three weeks. He could barely skate off the ice after he was hit by Colorado Forward Ian Laperriere. I’m told Lidstrom could miss up to two months with knee and head injuries. We haven’t heard much about the head injury.
Wings GM, who I respect a ton, knows NHL clubs will hold him hostage at the deadline if they know Lidstrom is expected to miss two months.
Just as I did last year with the “implosion” story, I’ll email Andy and ask him to give us a bit more. And just like last year, he’ll reply that his sources are just too important to him. That his journalistic integrity would prevent him from revealing them, or anything more than what he posted at Dwayne’s Emporium of Swill.
For now…three weeks takes us to 9 March. Let’s see if Nick makes deadline.

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.
