Full Circle

Welcome back 19. It's been a nice little break from hockey, and, what better way to get back into action than a game against the Avs. They are a very good team this season. They shamed the Wings in their last meeting, so, hopefully this group remembers, and, does not lay down. As of this writing, D-Boss is a game time decision, and, MacKinnon is out.

It's hard to believe that twenty-six years have passed since the Wings-Avs rivalry was the best in all of sports. Bar none. It's also pretty cool that the two former Captains of those storied teams, Steve Yzerman, and, Joe Sakic, are now once again in charge of their clubs at the GM level. I guess you could say we've come full circle.

Then along came Mr. I., and Stevie Y., and finally, Scotty Bowman. That changed the course for many years to come. Success, winning, Stanley Cups.

That's why we stay. We keep on watching for that little glimmer of the future. We see that in players like Larkin, and Mantha. We watched players like Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Lidstrom and Kronner. Leaders from both sides of the spectrum. The future and the past.

We watch because hockey is in our blood. We're Detroiters, and, we never give up.

Wingaholics all. No known cure.

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.
