The Latest

As expected, you have several options.  You want venom and bluster, some juvenilicious reaction?  Here’s probably your spot.

You want cold, hard facts with some analysis thrown in from George himself?  Then Malik’s your man.  I would expect that the rest of the Wing bloggers are going to be chiming in as well.  They can be found on the starboard side under, “Head to Hockeytown.”

For instance, Snapshots has the transcript of Gary’s Baby Boy sticking up for his Daddy’s decision...as if you expected anything else.  Little pansy ass Sid standing by the suits instead of his fellow players.  Shocking.

Just now on NHL Live?

Paul Kelly, paraphrased, said this:  that the NHLPA has not been formally notified that either Wing will have to miss their BJ’s on Tuesday.  No mention of Datsyuk, but heavy emphasis on the fact that Nick Lidstrom is a class act.

Now.  A few questions.

Any wonder why Kenny Holland is considered the best GM in the league? Forget the drafts, the trades, the signings, the roster.  Consider how he’s handled this.  He’s standing by his players, no matter what.  Paying attention Hoss?

If the replacement for Lidstrom (Robidas) was told last weekend that he’d be playing, as Mike Heika reported, then why is Nick Lidstrom being suspended?  Did this idea just pop up?

Can there be any doubt as to the animosity toward this organ-I-zation from Little Gary Bettman?  It’s obvious and it’s pathetic.  At what point, considering the Wings are widely acknowledged as the class franchise in a failing league, do the rest of the owners understand that Bettman must go.  Enough with the humorous asides and the jokes.  The guy is a disgrace to this league and it’s time he was no longer associated with it, employed by it or considered a representative of it.  Let him take his Crosby posters back to his own Jackatoreum and go blind on his own.  Later *#$%@&.

So, let me get this straight.  Pavel Datsyuk is injured in his last game before the break, opts out of the trip, and is suspended because he’s injured?  That’s what we’re saying right?  Just checking.

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
