    Report: Detroit to name Steve Yzerman as GM

    The Red Wings were given permission by the Lightning to talk to Yzerman back in March. I'm sure a lot of people in hockey circles knew he would be named the next GM in Detroit sooner than later.

    2019 Draft

    BPA. No way Broberg lasts to the 2nd round, but I'd be all for moving up for him, Soderstrom, York or Harley...
  3. They technically could, but I think a buyout would be more likely if there's no trade market.

    2019 Draft

    Whoever we end up drafting this year, when they walk up on stage, Yzerman will be there to present the Red Wings jersey. Will that jersey have number 19 on the back?...

    Holland is not "crushed". He's a big reason Yzerman is back...
  6. I agree, if we can retain 50% and trade Daley, that's obviously the better route. I'm just saying that if a team isn't willing to trade for him, which is a real possibility (he's old and he sucks), I'd buy him out. A buyout on Daley doesn't really effect the cap much at all over the next two seasons... 2019-20 - $1,699,999 2020-21 - $733,333 ... and frees up a roster spot this season. Whether Daley is traded or bought out, I don't care. I just think he needs to go...
  7. So, what changes can we expect now that Yzerman is the Red Wings GM? I don't think he's going to change everything over night, but I do think it's a little more likely that we see *some* changes under Yzerman, that we maybe wouldn't have otherwise seen under Holland... Is it more likely that we see a buyout on one of Daley or Ericsson? Is it more likely that we move on from Kronwall and Vanek? Is it possible we see an actual player for player "hockey trade"? Is it more likely that we see any or all of Cholowski, Rasmussen, Veleno or Zadina up to start the season? Going to be interesting to see how things play out...

    No, the people that said that are idiots...

    This is exactly where I'm at as well. I think we're going to see some pretty big changes over the next calendar year. Exciting times!

    Yeah, he was definitely involved in the decision to extend Blashill. First move? Buyout Trevor Daley. Well not necessarily the first move, but I think (hope) it happens sometime this summer... Regardless, going to be interesting to see what moves Yzerman makes this summer...

    Yeah, I've been saying for weeks this was "guaranteed" to happen, but still pretty pumped to see it becoming "official"...
