“Initially, it’s going to be almost an education in how the business works and the management side of running a team works,'' Yzerman said. "What I’ll be doing is spending time with Kenny (general manager Holland) and (assistant GM) Jim Nill and Jimmy D (senior VP Devellano) in the hockey department and observing how they operate, whether it be contract negotiations or player analysis, just sitting in, listening in and watching. I think I have some freedom as far as the business side of the organization, spend some time with them as well.’’
