I'm not ready to give Yzerman too much credit yet for any of Tampa's success.  He's been there for 4 years, the first year they went to the conference finals, but not much of that was due to anything Yzerman did, it was mostly due to the play of St. Louis and Stamkos.  The second year he was there they missed the playoffs.  The third year he was there they missed the playoffs.  The fourth year he was there they were eliminated in the first round.


I think they are starting to come around now, but again, that's more to do with Stamkos' maturation as well as Hedman starting to come into his own as well (both of whom were drafted before Yzerman came around).


true but yzerman did add a lot of depth to their defense imo and make that trade for ben bishop (who's been pretty great for them). 


If bishop were healthy last playoff, they may have won a playoff series or more. 


He has found some good you guys in the draft too.. a couple examples being drouin of course, who was not necessarily "found" by yzerman but, should be a great player.. he also drafted palat in the 7th round a few years back (59 points last year). 



He's not 100% responsible for their recent years, sure. And it's too early to tell if they'll be a great team under Yzerman.. but I think he's doing a good job and has them trending in the right direction.

I don't think that Eklund could correctly guess the lunch that he ate an hour ago
