22 minutes of Steve Yzerman with the media.

Not sure what all was said but you can find out. by watching.

Max Bultman of The Athletic,

It has been impossible not to notice, though, that former Red Wings GM Ken Holland has not yet named a director of amateur scouting at his new post in Edmonton (although he did recently name Keith Gretzky as his assistant GM). The Oilers website lists Bob Green, director of player personnel, as leading the amateur draft.

Holland hired Wright as Detroit’s scouting director in 2013, and Wright also was drafted 12th overall by the Oilers in 1991.

But even if Wright did eventually leave for Edmonton — and note that there’s been no hard information to that end — it also wouldn’t necessarily need to have much bearing on next week’s draft.

more (paid) from yesterday’s presser with Yzerman…

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.
