Malik…Arriving

Well, well, well frigging well. Lookee what we have here.  The shrivs at MLive couldn’t keep him so we’re stealing him away and bringing him to the Empire.  George Malik of Snapshots will soon be joining the Kukla’s highly renowned, credible and widely respected stable of bloggers.  I’ll stay too.

Malik’s on a multi-year run as the most prolific Wing blogger around, and now he’s ours.  Welcome aboard big fella. George will be posting at A2Y until September and then Paul’s gonna hook him up with his own blog here at KK’s.

I think he may wrap things up at Snapshots for a few weeks Chris.  He may start posting here as early as today, or in the next few.

Will it be a double dose of obnoxious or just better distribution?

Cue the complaining of there being 2 Red Wings blogs on KK in 3… 2… 1…

Nevermind, Moq jumped on the jackassery a little early.

Do remember, when the new KK arrives in September, KK Members will have the option of blocking any blog they wish from the homepage.

Basically, if you don’t want to read the blog on the KK Homepage, you will have the option to block it.

One less stop for me.  Although it was nice being able to find Georgie Boy’s posts via google search…for some reason, Chief - google news doesn’t pick up A2Y posts…hmmmm

Fantastic news. He’ll be a great addition to KK. Just make sure that you don’t do anything different.

Now we definitely need to get him to TC for TC.

Our new slogan:  “Biased and Unbalanced… the only way to Blog”.  I wouldn’t want it any other way.

That’s the plan.  It was incredibly difficult to leave MLive after four-and-a-half years but when the Emperor invites you to join the community, it’s pretty foolish to say no. 

We’re going to find a way to ensure that you don’t get Red Wings-spammed and I can only promise that I’ll do my best to fall on my face with as much regularity as possible (kidding).

I picked a good day to end my hockey summer vacation. Just when I thought KK couldn’t get more redolent of awesomeness, the Emperor brings Malik aboard. Congrats, George.

Awesome news.  George, welcome aboard, bring the coolness that is the Snapshots train to our ‘hood.

Basically, if you don’t want to read the blog on the KK Homepage, you will have the option to block it.

Trolls, no excuses now.  If we still see you around here, we’ll know how much you love us.

That will put my main sources for Red WIngs coverage all under the same roof.

Agreed.  All my daily must-reads under one site (to rule them all).

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.
