Steve Yzerman Q & A From Hockefest 2009:
"I really enjoy being involved in the management of the team," Yzerman said. "I enjoy working with Kenny and Jim (Nill, assistant GM) and Ryan Martin (salary cap) in the front office. I really find it interesting. Being involved with Team Canada is something I really enjoy as well. I feel I'm a relatively young guy in this business and I have a lot to learn.
"To answer your question, I'm very content doing what I'm doing right now and if the right opportunity did come along at some point, I'd probably consider it."

Bowman and Hossa left for Chicago, Todd McLellan left for San Jose. It's just the nature of the Business.
And personally, I'd rather have Holland or Nill as our GM than Yzerman.
And this article is BS anyway. So what if Canada wins Gold, does that make Yzerman some kind of genius?? I don't know, Canada was going to be pretty stacked either way you look at it.

That said, STAY, STEVIE, STAY!
Money on the board: Current total: $6
$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.
Hamsters I have had: (current Wings highlighted)
Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik
Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert
Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan
Andrew Patrick Ian Todd
Jordin Damien Gustav James

This is the most ridiculous comment ever posted on LGW.
Round 1: Red Wings (4) vs.
Round 2: Red Wings (0) vs. Sharks (0)

Team Canada disagrees with you.

I don't know but I doubt it would be a team in the west or a classic team like montreal so perhaps Tampa?
I would love to see Yzerman take over after Ken Holland rather sooner than later, I think Holland has been a GM for a long time now...
I'd hate to see Yzerman anywhere else, but if he wants to be a GM (he's earned it, or is in the process of earning it) he pretty much has to go elsewhere. Holland has been doing amazing and if Yzerman feels he's ready to go out on his own before Holland is ready to step down, he'll go elsewhere.
I guess the next best thing is to hope he doesn't go to a craphole like Tampa, but that he doesn't go to a team that's so good they could beat the Wings for the Cup.
EDIT: And to those of you who doubt Yzerman's skills, I guess he's been heavily involved (not just watching) in major decisions and development since he joined the front office. THat's not to say he'd be an amazing GM, but he COULD be.

What ever he does Red Wing or not I wish him the best of luck but I'd imagine if he did go to another team one day he would end up back in Detroit I think as long as an illich is an owner there will always be an open door for Yzerman.

Yeah, we should just let Steve f*** off. What the hell has he ever done for us?

I don't doubt that Yzerman would consider going to another team to be a GM, but I still question whether Illitch would let him go so easily. I don't know what that means, but I just tend to think it'd take a whole hell of a lot of "right opportunity" for Steve to leave the Wings. It'll be a sad day if it happens, but I'm not too concerned either way, and definitely am not worrying about it now.
