Report: Detroit to name Steve Yzerman as GM in General Posted 5 hours ago · Report reply 3 hours ago, xtrememachine1 said: No, he's not and I wouldn't expect him to do that. However, he could say nothing or if asked he could say something like "Its been a tough year for everyone. He's doing the the best he can do" etc. Saying a lot of great things about him and he's a "good coach", will make him look a hipocrite when (fingers crossed) he gets fired. Spoiler Alert: He'll be back.
