One reason...a writer under the handle "Two-Line Pass". After the Chief at Abel to Yzerman complained in a post that bashed the Red Wings, stating that TLP was obviously biased against the Wings...the staff writer for Puck Daddy actually came to A2Y and proclaimed: "And for the record, I don't hate the Red Wings, I hate their fans."...nice little bit of information from an overwhelmingly neutral site.
UPDATED 5:30 PM...Thanks to Jenny of the 19 for finding the post I am referring to. Feel free to spool through the comment section, there are some gems in there...not by me, but others.
Anytime I see anything from The Two-Line (P)ass, I usually stay away. But, the writer did mirmer this little blip about the Detroit Red Wings, so naturally, I have to comment on it:
This Mike Babcock quote lets you know the Red Wings' goaltending situation is a disaster, but everything else about the team is unfairly excellent: "We need 25 wins out of our backup." Sheesh.
A disaster, eh? Did you watch the play-offs this year, TLP? You think Ozzie is seriously going to have a repeat performance of last year's regular season? If you are, you're kidding yourself. Ozzie will play better and probably won't need his back-up to play in 25 games this year let alone win 25 games. The man obviously doesn't speak Babcock the way we do. But why would he care to speak our language? He hate us.
