@asktheduffer: Interesting that Jim Nill could take a day off from running #stars to come to Lidstrom night, but #TBLightning GM Steve Yzerman couldn't.
I AM SOf****** SICK OF PEOPLE JUDGING STEVE YZERMAN AS IF HE COULD *POSSIBLY* OWE THIS FRANCHISE MORE THAN HE HAS ALREADY GIVEN.
He called Lidstrom personally to explain his absence. The man just traded away a franchise player. If he would have skipped town, I'm sure people would have been just as up his ass the other way. NO ONE questioned his character while he was here--why the f*** are they starting now? Between this and the alumni game indecision judgment I want to punch myself in the face.
