While We’re At It…You’re An Idiot Too

So nice to see you. Just when we thought USA Today had come to their senses, here you are again to enlighten us with your glow of genius.

The Central Division looks interesting.

I think that may be the first time in four years anyone’s been stupid enough to actually put that thought in print.  But Ted Montgomery doesn’t stop there.

The Red Wings seem vulnerable, the Predators won’t go away without a fight, and St. Louis and Chicago are both much-improved. Even Columbus, with its talented goaltender Pascal Leclaire, seems poised to make a move. Stay tuned … the balance in this division could shift immeasurably.

I love that.  “...the balance in this division could shift immeasurably.”  Ted, you are a true tool bag.  Immeasurably?  Really?  I’m curious. Does that mean you’re predicting someone other than Detroit is going to win The Division That Gary Built?  That would be an “immeasurable shift”, right?

Say it Ted. Predict it.  Please.

Teddy’s Second Round Prediction

The Sharks are the far superior team in this matchup. They’re bigger, faster and hungrier. The Wings will have trouble containing Joe Thornton, Jonathon Cheechoo, Patrick Marleau and Bill Guerin. The only chance for the Red Wings to prevail is if Dominik Hasek somehow outplays Vesa Toskala. Here is how this series is likely to go: The teams split the first two games in Detroit, the Sharks win Games 3 and 4 in San Jose, Detroit wins Game 5 at home, and the Sharks close it out in Game 6.

Prediction: San Jose in six games.

Teddy’s First Round Prediction

The Wings are the better team — they had 17 more points than the Flames — but everyone knows that means nothing now, especially for the Red Wings. They are banged up (Henrik Zetterberg missed most of the second half of the season, and Hasek, Nicklas Lidstrom and Todd Bertuzzi are nursing injuries), and it will be a tough job to hold down the Flames. This could be an upset in the making

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.
