    Report: Detroit to name Steve Yzerman as GM

    Jeff Riger‏ @riger1984 FollowFollow @riger1984 More Heard today that Yzerman might bring Sergei Fedorov into the organization. Fedorov currently doesn’t have a “solid” job in hockey and he and Yzerman remain close. If true, Fedorov should demand a hefty salary, great benefits and of course his number hanging from the rafters. 7:39 PM - 19 Apr 2019

    Report: Detroit to name Steve Yzerman as GM

    On the Velenti Show Yzerman said he would have handled the TDL pretty much the same/ I do think Yzerman is more likely to move people though.

    I do think there are differences, and I agree with what you wrote but I think if people believe Yzerman is going to come in and do a 180 with how this organization is run, they are setting themselves up to be upset.

    Interview with Yzerman, he pretty much says that he and Holland are not that different.
  5. Ok, thats not as bad as I thought. I would like to see him go as well.

    Report: Detroit to name Steve Yzerman as GM

    Just heard Kevin Weeks on the Velenti Show, and Velenti asked (I'm paraphrasing) "Am I crazy, or with Blashill getting an ext, surely Yzerman had to approve it" Weeks answer: "You're not crazy Mike". Interview is here if anyone is interested. https://player.fm/series/the-valenti-show-1511420
  7. I really don't want to see any buy-outs until we need to do them. I feel that we could trade Daley to a team like Pittsburgh if we retained 50% and asked for peanuts (ie. a conditional 7th). E I would sit on for the rest of the season, he is a big body, and could garner some interest at the TDL. I do think we now move on from Kronwall/Vanek, which I'm hoping for! 100% on the hockey trade thing. This is something that Yzerman has shown he is willing to do with moves like the St. Louis for Callahan deal (though his hands were kind of tied) and more recently the Sergechev for Drouin deal. I hope so! Yzerman doesn't seem to be as reliant on vets as Holland, and this is something I am excited about! You really want an Abby cap hit for 8 more years? I'd much rather retain 50%, throw in a pick and trade him to a team like Arizona then buy him out. And even then, I'd wait until we needed the cap space.

    He's not wrong. While I am happy Yzerman is taking over, and while I do think Yzerman is a better choice to lead in 2019 then Holland, let's not forget that even if you erase everything Holland did prior to 2003, Yzerman still hasn't accomplished what Holland has accomplished. Hopefully he does.

    I was not expecting to read this today, but I am extremely pumped to see Yzerman coming home. Guy was my idol growing up, and it always rubbed me the wrong way seeing him in TB. I remember during some tribute at the Joe, Yzerman was on the screen wearing a TB jacket, and it just didnt look right. Completely agree with what @Dabura said two posts above.I think that Yzerman is going to be very similar to Holland, however where I think they differ is I think Yzerman is more likely to move some of "Hollands guys".

    NYI vs PIT - Series Thread

    Mainstream wise that would have been bigger, no doubt. But being a kid in Windsor in 1993 where you were either a Wings fan, Leafs fan or Habs fan, having the Canadians beat Gretzky for the cup seemed epic at the time.

    TB vs CBJ - Series Thread

    The mediocrity comment for a 62 win team was the funniest to me. I think that just shows how people latch on to something they heard without really understanding what it means. Ya I see no issues with that, if I am them I am trying to trade Callahan and an asset to a team near the floor. Or maybe a hockey trade, so a Coffey/Primeau for Shanny type deal with one of the guys you mentioned. I wouldn't be trading Stamkos, Kutch, or Hedman though (not that you implied that).

    TB vs CBJ - Series Thread

    Agreed, to me that would seem like the natural next step. Ripping apart the core would be downright stupid. If by tame you mean lack of "f***s and s***s", I didnt bother posting those because its just a bunch of ******. My point of most of thoes was more so the ridiculousness of the fans.

    NYI vs PIT - Series Thread

    I remember watching that series as a kid, I was absolutely shocked. In '91, '92, and '93 after the Wings were eliminated I started following the Pens, so up to that point I had never seen the Pens beaten and I viewed them as invincible.

    TB vs CBJ - Series Thread

    Obviously this series is far from over, but this seems to happen quite often. Whenever a team coasts through the regular season facing zero adversity, so foten as soon as the playoffs come around, its like they aren't prepared to "battle" so to speak.
