This might be jumping the gun, but I just got an official text from the DRW that says:

 

"Stevie Y: BACK IN THE D! The Captain will play in the 2013 Alumni Showdown 12/31 @ Comerica Park joining Lidstrom, Chelios, Shanahan."

 

And it was just added to the RW official site.

 

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today announced that former captain Steve Yzerman has committed to the team’s alumni roster for the 2013 Maple Leafs vs. Red Wings Alumni Showdown™ on Tuesday, Dec. 31, at Comerica Park as part of the 2013 SiriusXM Hockeytown Winter Festival™.

It's absolutely real life and I for one am grinning from ear to ear.  I'm honestly surprised as he said he has not skated since his last game in Edmonton.

I know this won't be popular, and I'm really happy that he's going to play, but it sort of burns my ass that it was such a begrudging acceptance.  If the game had been played last year like it was supposed to, we'd have never seen him in the Winged Wheel again.

 

Good for him finally coming around, but this is one fan who would have liked to see it happen differently.  When you play for one team your whole career and captain them to 3 Stanley Cups, occasionally you're going to be asked to do things like this, even if you're another team's GM.  Ya know?  Because it's hockey and we sort of take tradition seriously in this game.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Does anybody know if these alumni games will be broadcast outside of the michigan area? Perhaps online(not asking for any links to streams or anything like that). There are plenty of wings fans that don't get FSD on our tv's and need center ice or gamecenter that will be very disappointed if we can't watch our hero's one last time.

I wonder how much Stevie will work on his skating before the game?

Very excited. kipwinger makes valid points, some that I agree with, but damn I'm just excited that Yzerman, Lidstrom, Fedorov and Shanahan will be on the ice again together. Probably more excited for the Alumni games then the actual Winter Classic.

This many HOFers on the same ice and NBC or NBCSports doesn't broadcast it, then something is wrong.
