A2Y- Bad Hockey Fatigue Syndrome

01/17/2023 at 8:30pm EST

Hiya to everyone and welcome. I see the long hockey sticks are out for the abysmal performance and record thus far. I don’t know what everyone is expecting. I’m going to give fans the benefit of the doubt, and let it go as bad hockey fatigue syndrome. Wings fans are really feeling it right now. Everyone is unhappy, upset, pissed off. Calling out Yzerman, questioning Lalonde( 4 months in). It took Yzerman 8+ years to see the final result after leaving his first gig as GM. Oh, and that was without a pandemic interrupting plans made. Remember, Yzerman rarely if ever shows his hand. It can’t be said that fans haven’t been surprised by his actions. I still gotta believe Yzerman will do whatever is indicated in order to win.

It’s the Wings vs the Coyotes. The puck is set to drop around 9:00 PM ET, 7:00 PM MT, and will be broadcast on Bally Sports Detroit and the Red Wings Radio Network (97.1 The Ticket in Detroit). Also available on NHLPP/ESPN+, and BSAZ.

It’s a Live Blog!

Howdy Katie. They lose tonight to an inferior team and maybe the anger and frustration gets worse. All I want is 60 minutes of effort. Not 40, not 20 but a full 60. This is supposed to be when the Wings are playing their best hockey of the year. L.G.R.W.

Kate

I guess the Mullet is packed with Red Wings fans.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

The Mullet must be a great venue for fans.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

I hope they decide to play a whole game tonight. It would be the first time in awhile if they do.

Let's start on a light note: How did Merriam Webster invent the dictionary?

He had an argument with his wife and one word led to another.

Love the words of optimism! Believe in the Yzerplan! LGRW!

Hola 19.  2 very hungry teams. Let’s see who wants the cheese more. LGRW

17 sog.  Not bad for a road period on a back to back game.  Keep grinding boys.

Evenin’ Bitches!

A little late to the Mullett party but caught up to live.

Still a hard time filling the 5000 seat arena.

And barring a trade the last time this year for

GoatSexBear.

rwbill

GoatSexBear is a UFA!  
could become an instant A2Y favorite.

Cigar-Nurse

We need to cash in on these defense errors by the yotes. 

rwbillCigar-Nurse

For sure, you’d hate to give up a couple of stinkers and lose to this team after playing reasonably well

Cigar-Nurse

Yeah Larks. Keep grinding away.  

Kate

Great seating at the Mullet……

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

The howl……. Ugh!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Bad goal to give up.  Once again you guys are a minute or two ahead of my center ice feed.  

rwbill

Colorado and St Louis both outside the playoffs at the moment. Hard to believe.

rwbill

That Coyote 73% PK is just eating our lunch.

M. Glynn

Fabbri will sacrifice every ligament in his body for a goal!

Kate

Boooooo! Booooo!


Get them back now!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

The howl…..Ugh!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

CalquakeKate

I don't know which is worse, the howl or that stupid canon in Blue Jacket land.

rwbill

JFC i went out for 3 minutes and the Wings gave up 2 goals.  To the Coyotes.

M. Glynn

That's a tough call. It seems like you see that arm squeeze often now. Players are selling it more.

rwbill

Wow what a save that was by Hellberg.

Kate

Get that puck out! Jeebuz!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Jebus they’re lucky to keep Arizona off the board the last two minutes.

Kate

OT…. Luckily…..

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

bigfrog

O.T Arizona hemmed the Red Wings in their zone for two minutes. Lucky to get to O.T.

rwbill

They got a bunch of German family names.

Cigar-Nurse

Should we be happy or sad getting to OT vs a team on a 9 game losing streak? 

Calquake

I don't know aboot y'all but this is just unacceptable.

Kate

Skills competition…

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

I’ve only said this 10 or 12 times the season, but I really like Rasmussen’s game, and how he adapted to carve out a place for himself in the NHL.

rwbill

Red Wings get one point in Tempe.  Not a great feat.

Cigar-Nurse

Well that sucked.  Until the next game. Good evening 19. 

Cigar-Nurse

Well that sucked.  Until the next game. Good evening 19. 

rwbill

Next up, Vegas.  An actual NHL caliber team.  Hold onto your Stroh’s.

M. Glynn

I'm still hopeful for the future. LGRW.

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.
