All Niklas Lidstrom

from Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com,

The Red Wings are in full rebuild mode right now, with Steve Yzerman having come back from Tampa Bay to be general manager. How much patience do Detroit fans need to have?

"I think it's going to take some time. I don't think it's going to be a quick fix. I don't think there are any quick fixes. They're gathering key pieces for their rebuild. And I really think it helps having Stevie there. If you take what he's done for the team in the past and what he's done in Tampa, he's a proven GM. I think he's the right man to build this team. He's shown he knows what it takes to put a team together. With time he'll be able to do that with the Wings too."

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
