Note to JD: Shut Up

I guess when the team you inherited is showing signs of traditional suckage and underachievement, it's time to pull out all the stops and point the finger at anyone but yourself. Yes, JD, it was you who signed Weight, Guerin, McKee and Legace. It was you who should have known the pulse of the salaray cap'd NHL, but went ahead with your old boy reclamation project. So, if Mike Ilitch's temper flares after seeing yet another Wing take a freight train to the head, then it's his right to do whatever the hell he wants to. If that means finding a ref and having a chat, than so be it. If he even did that.

Matt Saler at On The Wings has an in depth take on this situation. 

If Davidson is implying that the Illitch somehow either influenced Frasier and Rooney to make pro-Wings calls, he’s being ridiculous. It’s insulting to the officials, for one thing, and deflects blame from his players, who earned what they got, for another. However, Illitch may have had something to do with Drake’s suspension, which should have been coming to him anyway because there’s no place for hits like that in the game.

Oh, and hey, remember Andy Strickland of “the implosion” prediction?  Well, over at Dwayne Klessel’s Emporium of BS, he’s letting his true homer colors show.

The Detroit Red Wings have to be the biggest whiners in the NHL today. Head Coach Mike Babcock is constantly hollering at officials after another one of his player’s gets drilled.

Here’s an idea, keep your head up!

During the game Detroit Owner Mike Ilitch ran downstairs to address the Drake hit with referee Kerry Fraser.

That’s just the tip of idiocy-laden iceberg.  Strickland goes on to babble about the Wings being too soft, about Ilitch never complaining when Probie and Kocur were riding roughshod over his little Blues and about the fact that he has to cover an organization that sucks and sucks hard. 

If you want the link, google this: Klessel+BS Rumors+whining Blues fans+implosion predictions by asshats+impartiality is overrated.

Or click here.  Whatever.

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. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
