Minus Malik, We Live Blog

01/31/2018 at 7:00pm EST

Well, that was expected yet a little surprising.

George Malik has moved on, and we wish him good luck.

Blogging is a tricky drug, and not necessarily a lucrative one. I've never tried to make a living doing it, and my family is thankful for that.

George was, and always will be, one of us. A Wing fan through and through.

Did I always agree with his subtle, and sometimes outright, tendencies to take the side of management and Ken Holland's "team of advisors"? Nope. But George writes with his heart and that's where his heart is. Can't fault him for that.

We, back when I actually did something other than spew a few paragraphs of a live blog every (most) game night, offered an interesting difference in style and views.

Where I prefer no research and pure emotion, George dug and considered. He is logical and methodical.

Where I was too lazy and traumatized after a loss to blog for days at a time, George offered us feedback within minutes. That, to me, is beyond comprehension.

And man did he, does he, work.

He was, and he is, an appreciated member of our Wing family. Good luck to you, GM.

As for us? We've got ourselves a hockey game and we'll go ahead and live blog it, bitches.

LGRW and, for George, Fire Ken Holland's decrepit,apathetic ass and clean house.

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.
