Sad Day For Detroit Hockey Fans

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Detroit Red Wings owners Mike and Marian Ilitch issued the following statement regarding Steve Yzerman’s hiring by the Tampa Bay Lightning:

“Today is a difficult day for us, just as we know it is for Red Wings fans everywhere. It’s hard to imagine Steve Yzerman in anything other than the red and white Winged Wheel as he has been synonymous with the Red Wings and Hockeytown for as long as most of us can remember! We want to congratulate Steve on his new position with the Tampa Bay Lightning. This is an exciting and well-deserved opportunity for him and his family, and we know he will do a terrific job in this next chapter of his life.

I wish him the best of luck.  I know he’ll be back someday.

Anything Stevie wants is fine with me. 22 satisfying years is enough.

He’ll get some experience as a GM and then bring it with him back to Hockeytown. Best of luck, #19!
