further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
Title says it all. I'm rooting for a successful (but not too successful) career for Yzerman, as I'm hoping like many of you that he ends up as the Red Wings' GM down the road. This seems like an important step, as did his major activity with Tampa Bay just before the trade deadline.
Wings are playing at Tampa.
This is the first regular season game between the Wings and the StevieY-led Lightning. Both teams are first place in their respective divisions.
Wings are up 1-0 on a Dan Cleary goal, midway through the first, and have killed off three consecutive minors.
According to the Toronto Globe and Mail, Steve Yzerman has accepted the General Manager Position for the Tampa Bay Lightning...
Personally, I wish Stevie Y all the best. Hopefully he is successful in Tampa Bay and can one day return home to the Red Wings.
Obviously it's hard to make a statistical case for The Captain as the greatest hockey player of all time, but no man in the history of American team sports served as his club's captain as long as Yzerman did for the Red Wings.
His legacy is one of unparalleled leadership, though his numbers--sixth all-time in scoring--speak for themselves. I realize Hull has the second-most goals in NHL history, but I think Stevie Y is hands-down the icon of this HOF class.
