All Ken Holland And Steve Yzerman

from NHL.com,

What is your philosophy to building a successful franchise?

Holland: “Stability. We’ve had the luxury of stability at the ownership level, management level, scouting level and coaching level. Also, in the time I spent with Scotty Bowman, I saw how he valued veteran players. We’ve continued to move our kids slowly and have always had a veteran presence, which has worked for us.”

Yzerman: “You try to bring in the best possible people in all positions, whether they’re players, managers or coaches. I want good people, passionate people, hard-working people and people who know the game. You want players who have skill, who compete hard and are intelligent.”

I think on Game Days, I will be making steak and pasta a ritual as well.

Steak and pasta, eh? But with what to wash it down?

Guinness.  It’s not just for breakfast anymore.
