Without Yzerman

from Bob Duff of the Windsor Star via the Ottawa Citizen,
His teammates knew the anguish Yzerman put himself though in an effort to prolong his playing days. "He was suffering a lot," Holmstrom said. "He couldn't play as well as he wanted to. "There was a lot of pain that he was going through, especially with his (surgically repaired right) knee. You could see how much it hurt him. "Before he had the bad knee, he could do so much with the puck. And even with the bad knee, he could be our best player still." With Yzerman gone, life goes on for the Wings, defending President's Trophy winners as the NHL's top regular-season team. There is still a season to prepare for and games to be played.
