Steve Yzerman Tonight

via Nick Cotsonika tweets,

Yzerman: "To be honest with you, I'm not surprised." The Red Wings had an 18.5 percent chance of winning the first pick. The placeholders had almost a 25 percent chance combined.

Yzerman: "I think we're going to get a great prospect, and hopefully that prospect turns into a player that can move the needle."

Yzerman was picked fourth overall. He said he had no idea what his NHL career was going to be like and "things worked out." Yeah, I'd say so.

Might as well trade the pick for either more pics or futures.  When youre hopinh your 1st eound pic moves the needle and you were the worst team in a century.  Trade the pick.

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.
