f*** Steve Yzerman. He's not the Red Wings, and the Red Wings aren't him. He stopped getting the Gordie Howe treatment the second he associated himself with another active NHL hockey team. Particularly with one that we're playing in the playoffs.
I hope we crush Stevie, the Lightening, the city of Tampa, and the whole state of Florida for that matter. Let an earthquake crumble it, let the fires rage, let it burn tof****** ash and then let the waters rise and submerge the whole rat-infested place, Stevie right along with it.
This is playoff hockey.
Just when I think this board is starting to show some class, you go and open your big heretical trash mouth.
"Look at me, I hate possibly the most beloved Red Wing player of all time now... because he makes personnel decisions for the team mine has to play against."
And may I recommend dropping the whole 'screw dirty tampa' bit as well. Those people can't read anyway, so it's falling on deaf ears.
