Not surprisingly, as this has been speculated upon over the last few days -

After vice-president Steve Yzerman took the Lightning's general manager's position last Tuesday, Ken Holland confirmed Tuesday that Yzerman has asked for permission to speak to Ryan Martin.

Martin, who is known to be close to Yzerman, handles the ins and outs of the salary cap for Detroit.


I like this take on the situation from a Mlive poster - this makes total sense -

As to why the Wings would allow him (Martin) to leave, this is the true meaning of loyalty. No one will want to work here if they know the steps at the top of the ladder are taken unless the guys at the top allow them to pursue opportunities for higher spots on other ladders. The Wings currently have limited space for promotion near the top, and none at the top, so they will lose quality personal when opportunity knocks.

I've never heard of this capologist.

Is that even an official job title?
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

From what I have read this guy is a pretty good asset for the Wings to have and he might be the most under appreciated guy working in this organization. There is a small article on Mlive about him, I believe it is 2 or 3 days old.

Not sure if it's the official title, but most teams have one. For example, Stan Bowman was the Chicago "capologist" before being promoted to GM.

Bowman was their Assistant GM and had been for a few years prior to his promotion. I do remember reading that as their assistant he was supposed to be very knowledgeable on the cap so maybe that's what you're thinking of.

Why should they allow Yzerman to steal this guy? Steve should be competent enough to find himself a capologist that is not part of the Red Wings. :rolleyes:

yes. We need a capologist here.

I'm 93% sure that on 58% of days that's Eva Unit Zero's job. :D
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Maybe we should call the Red Wings and ask to speak permission Ryan Martin for the LGW Capologist??

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.
