Friedman’s Timing

Pierre McGuire was on NHL radio yesterday, around mid-morning. I don't know the specific show because they all sound the same to me.  But I listen and I appreciate having the access via Sirius (send the check to Paul for his birthday).

Anyway, when asked about the Datsyuk situation, Pierre said he'd heard the rumblings all year and he was surprised it had taken so long to come to light. 

Interesting.

I NOW Consider Pavel Datsyuk a KHL Hall of Famer

1. I don't know what kind of sick put-the-lotion-in-the-basket kind of bastard stuck us with this three-day layoff before the Train runs us over and leaves us for rotting, fetid, fecal dead, but whoever they are needs to be wrapped up in some sort of plastic material and shrunk down to the size of a small Honduran boy who would still be 3 inches taller than Gary Bettman.

b. Pavel Datsyuk is not going to leave this organ-I-zation hanging to the tune of 7.5 American dollars.

Run With It

Whatever the message going down in the locker room at the Joe, run with it and don't look back. As we all know there is no margin for error, and winning is the only way to take care of business.

It's up to the Wings to define their own destiny and make the Playoffs.

Just. Get. In.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

12 hours out of Mackinaw City I stopped to have a brew, or two, or hell…just open it up Voox

5 games left and every one of them is a death sentence waiting to happen. Boston's in St. Louis tonight, so yeah...we're pulling for the Blues.

But most importantly, we're pulling for the Wings.

Against a team I personally despise.

As much as I hate the Blues or the Dive or Ohio State or Bud Light? No.

Helene St. James Calling On The Party Line

Recently posted headline at the Freep: "Who bears responsibility for the Detroit Red Wings' woes?"

HSJ, salty, swarthy, seasoned deep digger that she is, always willing to bust out the truth when needed, threw out a few options:

"Defensemen"

"Nyquist"

"Zetterberg"

"Richards"

Notice anyone or anything missing?

A town in mid-Michigan, maybe? Ever been there?

Holland.

Hide The Neighbor’s Pets and Send The Family Away

This is no time for hijinks and word play.  No nifty turns of phrases.  We are looking dire straits right in the face and there's a sneer staring back at us. The odds are not good. Neither is this team, frankly.

But...

Bar’s Closed Kenny. You Don’t Have To Go Home, But…

There used to be a cute little ditty we'd throw around in late April,  a condescending little tune.  While "fans" in Denver and Toronto seethed, we used to say, "I hate the playoffs."

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.
