Detroit News’ New Business Plan: Find Someone Really Stupid And Hire Them To Write Headlines

I’m not going to blame Chris McCosky for this one because the article he wrote really doesn’t support the headline.  But, man, this is just plain dumb. 


So, you lose Franzen, Filppula, Williams, Hossa, Samuelsson, Hudler and still compete…yet you have “depth issues”?

I think we’ve all come to a realization that this year is going to be the most difficult one we’ve had to endure in a long, long time.  But, if anything, the recent spate of injuries has proven that Detroit’s organ-I-zational depth is the gold standard…not an “issue.”  In fact, that is so clear that it almost goes without saying.

Unless you’re the Detroit News and you feel the need to prove, again, that attention to detail is just not something required in today’s world of healthy newspapers and first-class journalism.

Three top six forwards out and yet the Wings can still ice a team that features Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Holmstrom, Cleary, Helm, Draper, Leino and Bertuzzi up front.  Depth “issues”? Really?

There is going to be new stress every week.  You and I both know the injuries aren’t over until we see Homer and Hank in civvies.  The trend is sickening and could very well be a harbinger of worse to come.  But don’t try and tell me the Wings don’t have depth.  That’s just plain stupid.

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.
