Abel to Yzerman

Only 4 Left

Sobbing Dique apologist Terri Frei writes this morning that only a handful of players remain from The Rivalry, and just one from the Dive.
Yzerman's retirement also means the Red Wings have only four players - Tomas Holmstrom, Kris Draper, Kirk Maltby and Nick Lidstrom - remaining from the most heated period of the rivalry, 1995-98. That's three more than the Avalanche has. "I'm the only guy left from those years," Sakic said. "I will tell you it's fun playing Detroit. They have a great hockey team and we're always going to have some pretty good hockey games."

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
