from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,
It’s not often you can write your own ticket, but Steve Yzerman can….
The Tampa Bay Lightning might be looking with a new owner Jeff Vinik and Brian Lawton’s contract running out, or something else might suddenly pop open after the season ends or after the playoffs if a contender goes down early.
0r does Stevie Y just stay where he is for a few more years in Detroit, as a valued voice in the room with GM Ken Holland, assistant Jim Nill and VP Jimmy Devellano? Holland isn’t going anywhere any time soon, unless owner Mike Ilitch asks if he’s tired of the day-to-day grind and maybe Holland wants to kick himself upstairs.
“I don’t really have a plan. I’m here in Detroit, still learning a lot. I like being around Kenny, Jimmy and Ryan (director of hockey administration Martin),” said Yzerman. “I’m pretty happy.”
