Abel to Yzerman

And So It Begins

After a two-month layoff, which we guardedly refer to as "the absence," Abel to Yzerman has returned. If you're reading this you're obviously aware of our new location and A2Y's new Godfather, Paul of Kukla's fame. And by way of showing thanks, Paul has the honor of being the first addition to the A2Y Glossary. From henceforth....Corleone'. Speaking of the glossary, you'll find a link to it on the left sidebar soon. Still working on it. What else is new? Well, the style is different as you can see. Your Wing bloggers can be found in the "Head to Hockeytown" section, along with the links to the Deep Diggers. I've also added Gloveside.net as another great source of Wing news and opinion. Below that are links to notable bloggers from around North America. Bloggers: if I've missed you, .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or leave a comment. Unfortunately the guys who hosted A2Y are being Roy-like and it's a frigging negotiation to get my files.

What hasn’t changed?  Oh, the backbone of A2Y is still very little fact and plenty of opinion.  The Fan Post of the Day will return, so will the Michigan Blogs of the Week.  A2Y was founded as a reaction to the fact that the Wings received pathetic coverage from our hometown media, so we’ll continue to watch the beat writers (Deep Diggers) closely.  Ansar Khan(!) remains the DD captain with Helene St. James and Ted Kulfan as alternates.

Game recaps will continue.  Definitely my favorite thing to write, and if comments at the previous site were any indication, your favorite items to read.

Before we go much further, a few thank you’s. Obviously to Corleone’ for inviting A2Y into the Kukla family of blogs.  But a few more…thanks to the Wing fans over at Cootie’s Wing Forum who have put up with my daily idiotic stats posts the last few days as we’ve waited for the unveiling of A2Y III.  A big thanks to bloggers like Cason and AQ who wrote during “the absence” to make sure the Chief wasn’t passed out in a Thai gutter. Not denying that I was, just that I didn’t stay in the gutter. Sleeping is sleeping.  Staying is UA (AWOL to you Army folk).

And that’s it.  We’re back in business.  I’m going to leave this at the top of the page for a bit. New material will appear below.

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
