lol who cares if he's an all time great. That's irrelevant now. He jumped ship because the whiny turd thought he was above waiting in line just like many have done before him.
Honestly I hope he had a miserable career.
Whoa whoa, check yourself friend. Yzerman is not a whiny turd because he wantedto manage a team that wasn't the Red Wings. By that standard all of Holland's and Babcock's proteges for the last several years have been whiny turds. Are you saying the RedWings have been run by whiny turds???
Yzerman was sent off with best wishes.
Holland wasn't stepping aside so he, like Nill, had to go somewhere else for their career to continue to progress.
I hope Steve has an illustrious GM career, whether if it's for us or not. He was raised by us and trained by us and thus I hope he continues to reflect that high standard when he's apart from us.
He is the opponent now, I understand, and I want nothing more to trounce his team. But that doesn't mean I don't respect the man or his team.
