Bullet Bob Seger was a young man in the early 70's. He, because he felt change would do him good, headed west. It was there that his world crumbled when he put a lot of stock into some surface emotions. Yes, I know. Young, dumb and full of...enthusiasm. She swindled him though. She led him on and then crushed his soul.
But don't blame her. Oh no.
She may have been a conniving skank, but BB fell for it. The power of the P, I tell you.
So one morning Seger woke up alone and realized life would be better with a harder edge.
Which leads us to Game 2. A harder edged Wing team, led by a psychopath, or at least complemented by one. They posed little threat in Game 1, from what Gary would let me see. One power play goal and minimal chances even strength. And that's why we absolutely hate the playoffs. Four straight games of dynamic offense. Four straight games that brought hope into our lives, then one little episode to remind us that hope isn't a plan it's just a wish.
So the plan...the plan has to be harder. Edgier. Tougher. Meaner. And as a result, more chances. More shooting. More stress for the Swiss kid. How would you handle the pressure if a toothless serial killer was all up in your grill, his ass wagging, stick tormenting, heaving and rumbling.
Todd Bertuzzi will not win this game for us, but he poses a threat. And we need threats.
It's a Live Blog, bitches.

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.
