Post Game Frustration

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Blashill spent most of his postgame address expressing his dismay about the recent change in the way the league is ruling these plays.

"I thought hockey ops had done an unreal job the first part of the year of making a gray rule as black and white as they could," Blashill said. "Basically, if you went in the blue on your own and you made contact with the goaltender and kept him from being able to play his position, it was going to be called back.

"Then there was a meeting at the All-Star Game and there was a feeling too many goals were getting called back, so they want to go back to this term 'egregious.' What's egregious mean? It means something different to (everyone), so now we're back to ultra-gray.

"All I know is Pominville had no reason to go into the crease. He stood literally right in front ... right on the goalie. ... So, I don't know what goalie interference is now."

Recap- Wings/Sabres

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

Written before Abdelkader scored lat to tie it up.

Petr Mrazek was good, stopping 19 of 20 shots in a 2-1 win.

Oops, confused a bit.

Wings lose 2-1 at home to the Buffalo Sabres.

Let that sink in.

Playing out the string, April 7th can't come soon enough.

Goals and Detroit team statss are below and the Kane goal will be discussed but it doesn't matter in my eyes.

Just another loss and as they say, more to come.

Back to reality, Sabres win 3-2 in OT.

I am not by any means a debbie downer, but my gosh, it is late February and it is also reality.

I NOW Consider Ken Holland An Elite War-time Consigliere

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Tom Haden didn't have it. Michael Corleone never really said what "it" was, because Fredo was a problem and so was Carlo and Sonny's death needed to be avenged. 

All Michael told Tom was that he wasn't a war-time consigliere and let there be doubt, war was coming.

Thankfully, our Wings will be avoiding war for another postseason so we don't have to worry about the fact that our consigliere is a peace time (cap-free) GM, ill-equipped for the savagery of a war-time (cap-driven) NHL environment.
