Bill at A2Y feels fingers will point in the direction of Ilitch and Holland if Stevie hangs em up. Bill, you better be careful, the Wings may cut off your access to the lockerroom after statements like that!
Steve Yzerman knew he was healthy enough to keep playing the night he stormed down that tunnel, away from that frigging Hell that the Rexall rink had become. He also knew that this iteration of Wings wasn’t worth another year of his life. Steve Yzerman will come back if he feels the team is going to dynamically change.
If Yzerman retires, blame Holland and Ilitch for not doing enough to improve this team.
