Well Lookee Here…Stuart Signs For Four With Wings

AlanaH breaks it at the Empire Home Page, with some help from TSN.

All Wing signings and commentary will begin and end with this post. It’s a UFA live blog is what it is.

Updated 1545: Wings sign a backup.  Riveting commentary below.

Updated 1613: Well bitches. Tucker’s a Dive.  I’ve always hated that bastard.

Updated 1800: With Devo’s signing (just made it up. Figure it out. Read below) for 750 and Ozzie making 1.4 next year? The Wings are committed to just over two million for a pair of goalies who could arguably be referred to as top ten in the league last season.  Chicago?  Just under 12 million for Huet and Khabibulin. Forget comparing the two sets of tenders.  Dale Tallon or Ken Holland? No choice, eh?

Stuart:  likes the team. Likes, yes, likes the town. Likes the stability.  Likes cracking skulls with his new pal Nik.  Unexpected happiness brought to you by Tick Tock Kenny Holland.

Conklin: Holy jumpin’ what a steal.  Conklin for 750? Are you frigging kidding me?  One thing’s for sure.  Jimmy’s a Griff for at least one more year.  Something a little more subtle:  he may never see any consistent time in Detroit.  Ever.

Ok. Look. I’m not into the juvenile creations of genitalic references to our new backup goalie.

But I will say this.  Chris Osgood’s only starting four against Columbus this year.

Because we all know what’s expected when the BJs come to town. That’s right bitches.  Time to whip the Conk out.

What?  Me? Sorry. Jeez.

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.
