Helene St. James: TPSH Will Win The Pulitzer

No one else seems to have heard it.  The emperor's kept us updated in the comment section of this TMR post.  A quote like this, during a season like this, at a political time like this when a misplaced comma equals "fake news."

But, here it is.

“He is probably one of the best competitors I’ve ever been around in my life,” Blashill said. “His competitive desire is unreal. It’s not an outwardly competitiveness where he is real emotional -- it’s just his ability to grind.

I believe we will make the playoffs because of Henrik Zetterberg.”

Helene St. James, hall of fame lemming and Holland machine lackey, actually used quotes to indicate Jeff Blashill said that today. Word for word.

With 3 Hours To Go, Holland Gives Vanek Away

It wasn't 2:45. It wasn't a deal that got faxed in at 3:20. Three hours before the deadline, actually 3 hours and 15 minutes before the deadline, Red Wing GM Ken Holland sent Tomas Vanek to Florida for a 3rd round pick and an AHL'er who's already been waived once in his career.

And So It Ends, And Begins

Well, there goes Smith.  We saw that coming.

Is Vanek playing tonight?  Because, you know, if he is, that would be stupid even by Holland/Blashill standards, and those standards for stupidity are incredibly low or high, depending on the ratio(nale) you use.

Vanek, our second best offensive player this year, is gone.  Now it just boils down to what our overrated, most likely napping, definitely tire-kicking GM can get.

Who else could or should go?

This Is How It Starts…

It's one of my favorite movie lines.  From "Training Day". Denzel Washington, noticing a particularly subtle but aggregious maneuver from a street tough, mutters "that's how it starts."

After a weekend that featured two startling wins over "the best teams in the East", we're seeing all sorts of blissful commentary from the Wings.

Rosby On Tap

The Wings will beat Washington and Pittsburgh in the same weekend and every single one of us will spend the rest of the spring and summer pissed off that talent resides on this team to win like that, over those teams, and still miss the playoffs.

Today Is Not The Day

Interns from Saginaw Vallety State are chiming in via text and MySpace: the weather is spring-like in SE Michigan.

You know what that means. Playoffs are in the air. You walk outside, smell something nice, do a little stretch and you're thinking the playoffs are almost here.

Well, they're not, Kenny.

They are most definitely not.

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. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
