Abel to Yzerman

Many Good Things Come From Nashville…

... unfortunately, I can't think of any right now.

I also can't think of anything really important or witty to put here (as usual), so let's just stick to the facts: The Prednecks are coming off a huge win against the Kings, and the Wings are basking in a come-from-ahead victory in South Beach. Last game saw Zetterman and Snapplecrater back in the lineup, and tonight we get to see God and King James make their returns. I'm not too worried about Helm keeping up...

... but Howard....

... well, let's just say my confidence is perched precariously on the brink. "Hope for the best, expect the worst," I always say. May be a crappy way to go through life, but it keeps the disappointments to a minimum.

Everyone's looking forward to January 1,  2014, and renewing the rivalry with Toronto in the Winter Classic - but first thing's first: Tonight, a dangerous team in the Nashville Predators... expect a hard-fought battle for two badly-needed points

Just win.

Let's remind Bubba why they should be thankful the Wings aren't in the West anymore, and send 2013 out with a banging Live Blog, Bitches.

Nashville clusterfuch handling the puck behind the net. Obviously, they have been studying our game films.

You’re assuming people in Nashville can count to sixteen?

Damnit, why did HSJ have to mention Jimmy going to the Olympics. His head is so far up his ass again trying to see Russia, he cant even find the puck right in front of him.

If Abbey could just perfect the art of getting cross checked as he goes to his backhand, he will have something indeed.

If Team USA kept Howard off the team he’d be so pissed he’d get fifteen shutouts in a row, just to show the brass they were wrong.

But he gets invited to Sochi after playing mediocre-poor hockey, and the results…well, we shall see

Currently distracted with the Oregon v. Texas game ... think I’ll head back over there now and check back to see if Jimmy’s sorted out his game in a week or two. Yuck.
