Abel to Yzerman

The Main Hatchway Is Secure

Down 0-1 to this team is not necessarily a concern.  Down 0-2 would make me sad but not fetal. 

Am I stressed?  Yes ma’am. 

But concerned?  No.

Blogging from a mobile device?  That makes me itch.  The San Jose Sharks do not. 

Live blog it.  But don’t stress too badly, too soon.

Rain and storms rolling thru SE Mich. If I lose power, I’m gonna be all kinda of pissed off.

I have a pretty hard downpour up where I am right now. Hopefully that’s all I get.

I’m out in Novi. It’s raining fairly hard, but I think the thunder has all rolled past. I’m a bit scared to check the radar.

if not for nabokov, fleury would be the worst goalie left in the playoffs.

i know that came from nowhere, but if any trolls are reading this, prove me wrong.

Awesome.  Be loud.  Don’t take any guff of those swine!

I’m up in Rochester and we had a storm about an hour or so ago but it looks like its letting up around here now. Last I checked it just one bad band, and a smaller rain band following up later. Hopefully

Statistically I would say that so far Fleury has been by far the worst of the goalies still playing.

Lately for some reason I’ve been reading Yahoo’s NHL articles, and some Puck Daddy stuff too, and the comments there are maybe the stupidest I’ve ever seen anywhere.  I keep telling myself to stop reading, but it’s like a car crash, I can’t look away.

That’s right.  Of course the gentleman has a major credit card.  Do they know who the *#$%@& they’re dealing with?

From NHL.com:

Injury Report—Marleau, who missed Game 1 due to the flu, practiced with the team on Saturday and will be in the Sharks’ lineup for Game 2. … Wings forward Patrick Eaves (arm) did not skate on Saturday but is expected to play in Game 2. Defenseman Brian Rafalski also did not skate, but will be in the lineup.

I’m tired of the will-he/won’t-he shit.  I’ll believe it when the teams play.

Every now and then I stop in there and/or ESPN “conversations” (ridiculous use of the term), shudder violently, and run away screaming.

I love when people always try to talk about Fleury is some insane NHL superstar goalie, or is going to be in the future (Gretzky??).  He is a totally average goalie.

Those Russians are all the same.  No faith in the essential decency of the Red Wing culture.

Hardly. He might not have the great numbers, but he wins.

Nope. Game 1 and 2 are Versucks exclusive. Best you could do is a TSN feed.

No worries? Your great team gave Sidney Crosby his first Cup, I wouldnt be talking

At least we’ve put ourselves in the position to give the Cup away.

This argument, I’ve heard it before, but no one listens to us when we make it.

It was not given, it was taken in a very vicious manner. Nasty, tricksy little thieves, they stole it from us.

Thanks.
It’ll keep him from being sacraficed if it works.
Otherwise, no promises ...

Let’s hope Mule can avoid those 2 minute “bleeding” penalties tonight, eh?

Posted by cs6687 on 05/02/10 at 08:03 PM ET

Do you know what the word average means?  The only way to measure a goalie is by his numbers.  He gets wins because the team in front of him scores more goals than he lets in.  He still lets in enough goals to make his numbers literally average.

Not entirely. Wins and big saves > numbers.
