Abel to Yzerman

Gary Bettman deserves your scorn. And, thankfully, you give it to him frequently.
But I’ve been knocked down a peg today. One of the 19, RWBill, posted an image in the comments of this post that explains the innocent mistake Gary’s crack staff made last evening.
Even the most astute of commissioners can’t be blamed for mistaking Nick Lidstrom for Dick Lindstrom.
He’s only won six Norris trophies Gary. You gave him the cup a little over a week ago.
What did you say to him then? “Congrats Dick”?
I’ll be editing this as we move along.
Gordie Howe, Lifetime Achievement Award? Could it have gone to anyone else?
Lidstrom, Norris? Check. Legendary. 2nd Best Ever? Maybe. Maybe Better.
Datsyuk, Selke? Check. “Long speech, but English is little.”
Zetterberg, Selke? Denied, but with a big old consolation trophy.
Datsyuk, Byng? Check. There was no doubt.
Chelios, Masterson? Denied, but with a Cup, and still with a job…allegedly.
Uncle Mike Babcock, Adams? Denied, but there is no doubt, none, who the best coach in the NHL is.
It’s a dynastic Live Blog.
Dave at Gorilla Crouch is an ambitious dude. About a month ago he started sending out emails that sounded all official, suggesting Central Division bloggers join forces for one big, fat look at the Division Gary Gave Us. He laid out a schedule, wrote us some promotional verbiage and set the stage for a three-week bonanza.
