Interesting sidenote to the Game 7 ditty that many of you have stricken from your alcohol-riddled memories: the Wings were the better team. The Wings are always the better team. But by the time G7, R2 rolled around last year…Detroit was rolling. Here’s what we said when we kicked off the last Live Blog of last season...
And here’s something else: Wings win tonite and they become the favorites. I mean, THE favorites. The favorites to beat Vancouver, the favorites to win the whole damn thing. San Jose wins and nobody with a brain cell picks them to go any further than five or six games against the Canucks.
You can’t argue with that. You just can’t. Nothing was exaggerated and nothing was wrong. Had the Wings won that, Vancouver would have been history. And Boston’s not built to deal with the depth of Detroit. Nobody is, really. Except for Columbus…and Washington.
It’s so early. Golly, it’s early. But you have to figure that the Wings feel a little dirty after getting their asses handed to them by the worst team in the league, just after a spanking in DC. You have to think that if any night is ripe for a reckoning, it’s tonite.
So, Live Blog this bitch. Go on now. Live blog it. Before you do, because you dig your Live Blogs and whatever else falls on this site from time to time when I get the energy to write, click here and do what the Emperor tells you to do.

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.
