Mitch Albom wrote this story on the morning of the Wing's cup clinching win in 1997. How incredibly spoiled have we been for the last 25 years to have 2 such amazing captains.

He is 32, working on what's likely his final contract as a player.

:lol: That line got me! Little did Mitch know Steve would be here 10 more years!!!

I read another article today on the 97 cup run and it mentioned that Yzerman ripped the Wings a new one when Detroit were tied 2-2 in the series with St. Louis. I want that transcript! It's said that no single Wing has ever repeated a word of that speech to anyone.

Oh yea and the roar for Yzerman gives me the chills.

Every time I watch that video, I feel a slight bit bad for Martin LaPointe. I mean, you have to follow Steve Yzerman in the introduction line.....that couldn't have been easy. Not saying the fans didn't like him or anything, but I mean.....it's Steve Yzerman. The fans would cheer him tying the laces on the boot of his skate.
