It'll be something related to the new arena I bet. Maybe something Winter Classic-related. But I don't think relations with Fedorov have improved this summer so I doubt it's his participation in the game.

And it can't be Lidstrom, because we don't have cap space. Sadly. I don't remember the last time they made a mysterious announcement. Strange.

Screw Fedorov he never wanted to be here any ways

Eh, this is big news?  It would have been big news if Yzerman played.  I fully expected Lids to play.

That isn't even news if that's all that was to be the big deal once again big let down. We already knew he was playing in that. I still think its more $1 hot Dogs once a week

The worst kept secret since the 2013 Winter Classic "announcement."  Fans knew months before the official announcement it was going to be Detroit/Toronto.  They act like it's the Red Wedding when in reality it's more like WikiLeaks.

 

Still, yay for The Perfect Human!
 


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

They're moving training camp to Mt. Pleasant???   They canned the head of security at Centre Ice???  They're going to treat wheelchair bound people better???

 

Well, like someone else said, we can dream...

Maybe this one game kind of Tim Thomases him into wanting to come back for real, and at league minimum.

 

Shut up, I can dream.

Well there are these little tidbits:

 

George Sipple @GeorgeSipple 38m

Holland said Sergei Fedorov is interested in playing in alumni game. It will depend on his his GM responsibilities in the KHL.


 

George Sipple @GeorgeSipple 40m

Ken Holland said he hasn't officially asked Steve Yzerman to be part of alumni game yet, but will.

Can Yzerman even skate well enough anymore to participate in something like that? 

 

It was painful enough after his osteotomy.  I can only imagine how it is now.

Sign him for a one day contract so he can play the actual game against the Leafs!

If Shanny, Yzerman, Fedorov and Lidstrom all suited up again for the Winter Classic it'd sure be something. Those guys are very much the reason I'm a fan today, obviously there are factors that could work against it, but I'm hoping it happens!

I don't know, I don't get the hoopla over the Alumni games.  I don't really care if any of these guys participate or not.  Last I heard, Yzerman had said he hadn't even had a pair of sakes on in like 3 years and this was a few years ago.  He's the GM of the Tampa Bay Lightning, a division rival of the Wings. Stevie, Sergei and Shanny have all moved on to other things.  Maybe the fans should too?
