Abel to Yzerman

A Lose, Lose

Do the Wings end the season with a couple of wins? Will they lose the last two games for possible better draft position? We all know the draft is always a gamble.

There are 19 Wingaholics anxiously awaiting the outcome of these last two games, which we all know could end up being a lose, lose for the Wings.

 We’ll soon find out...

It’s a Live Blog!

Hi Kate. Two games left. Draft positioning probably won’t mean much for the Red Wings, and everyone knows why. grrr

Popping in to thank Kate doing the live blog.  Trust me it is not easy doing these while the Wings hang around the bottom of the standings.

Thanks too to the 19, better days are ahead, I hope.

Evenin’ Bitches!
Thanks again for the live blog Kate, and for the forum PK.  Some 15 or 16 years ago Paul put an idea into an actual living, breathing force.  Cannot even estimate how many hundreds of thousands of hours since spent on reading and clipping articles from around the world.

Columbus is a feeble 2-5-3, even worse than the Wings, and show little punch, but then again so do the Wings.

Drafting position makes all the difference. This year there isn’t 3 chances to move up only 2 so position means more. I want Steve to be able to trade down if he wants for more picks.

Since I am not rooting for more pts I haven’t been in the threads. I didn’t want to be a debbie downer for the group.

Play well but lose. Winning won’t gain anything. Chance at a better draft position is all that’s left. L.G.R.W.

It’s possible the Chinese rocket could land on Columbus and force these teams to start from scratch.  Something like 8:30 ET tomorrow night still plus or minus six hours, depending on when the edge of the atmosphere begins to snag it.

I hear ya Kate and I agree. However there is much speculation He’s coming back. I don’t see someone like Gerard Gallant or Lane Lambert waiting another year if they get an offer for next season.  confused

Yup CalQ, I have said similarly before, not a great time yet for a coach looking for a group that can legitimately be force fit into a winning team.

I am assuming Lambert and/or Gallant are in serious contention for the Wings’ coaching position. They may not be.

So a man goes to the social security office on his 65th birthday to sign up. He gets to the window and realizes he left his ID at home. He explains it to the clerk and she says “ no problem. Just take your shirt off. He does and she sees all the gray hair and says “you’re good to go”. 
He comes home and explains what happened to his spouse. She then chimes in “ya should of pulled your pants done and yo would’ve got disability too”. tongue wink

I am going to guess that Yzerman doesn’t come out and say Seider is ready for the NHL, more likely some non committal stuff.
