In The Caine Mutiny? Ensign Keith’s name was Willie. He was kind of a candy-ass. An uppercruster and a perfect portrayal of an officer who would get eaten alive in the fleet.
Willie Mitchell is no ensign. He likes to hit people. He likes to hit them hard and I’d like him to hit people who wish the Wings harm. And I’d like him to do that for the next few years with new BFF’s Nik Kronwall and Brad Stuart.
Rumors, one cultivated by the Emperor himself (in the comments), indicate Detroit may be in the running. I find it hard to fathom an economic situation that would allow it. But…
The Wings would be blasting MF’ers. Kronwall and Stuart. Mitchell and…whoever. Johnny? A change of pace and a few rushes with TPH and Rafalski, then it’s back to hammering bitches.
Can Detroit afford this thing? Probably not, but all the cool kids are saying it’s down to the Wings and 3 other teams. Mitchell will probably play for relatively cheap considering the concussion he’s trying to prove is no longer a factor. We’d have to deal some salary, etc, etc.
Is it realistic? I’d say no chance in hell. But as long as others are discussing it, and as long as the only others aren’t wedding singers, we may as well too.
Come to Hockeytown Willie. We can’t pay you much, but a parade’s a comin’. And everybody loves one of those, you know?

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.
