Abel to Yzerman

Total Wingaholics

I have to believe that everyone who joins in an LB this season knows the likely outcome of the game on any given night. Going forward into the rest of the season with barely any expectations is the best way to proceed. It's not a knock on the Wings. It's just reality, and that's alright. It has been many, many years since the team has been in this spot, but, we're still here, never wavering. There is a nice balance here at A2Y of old timers and younger fans too. That makes for a nice mixture of good fans and total Wingaholics. 

It's an early evening Live Blog!

Here’s hoping the Wolverines can salvage what has been a nightmare of a thanksgiving weekend for Detroit sports fans.

Hi all! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Sorry to be negative.

Hey Dogg! You’re certainly not the negative one. The Wings went super negatory on us all. Losers….

Guess the shot to the back of the head retaliation doesn’t matter.

The schedule does look up, they have the Caps tomorrow night on the road, with only 39 points in 26 games, on pace for 123 points.

I have said a few times that under Blash the last few years they’ve had similar catastrophic runs of 10 or 11 games, but the cavernous goal differential and uncompetitiveness of the games is beyond anything previous.

Maybe if one of the 3 WIngs looking around for the puck had just tied up VanClownsdyk…

The really sad part of this awful stretch of hockey, is no matter how bad it gets, they aren’t guaranteed the #1 pick.

I don’t recall any of the really bad Wings teams being nearly as bad as what we’ve seen so far this season.

True, and I think it works out that it’s even slightly below 50% to get a top 3, but no worse than 4th.

I think next week there’s a 4 day break between games, that would be a good window.  Or, the morning after any of these games.

Oh, it is home tomorrow, so that really stacks the odds in the Wings’ favor.
