Yzerman Almost Retired Mid-Season

I hope most of the KK readers understand there may be more than the usual posts on Yzerman in the next week or so. His retirement talk is huge here in Detroit and I am sure many fans of the NHL have an interest too. from the Detroit Free Press via the Mercury News,
Steve Yzerman says he knows what he'll do. And for once, the mysterious legend is easy to figure out: The Captain plans to retire. If you think Yzerman is coming back for a 23rd season, understand this: He almost didn't finish his 22nd. Yzerman came close to retiring in the middle of this season. A lot closer than most people realize. How close? One game away. According to two people familiar with his thinking, Yzerman had serious discussions with the Red Wings about retiring in late November. He even had a final game in mind: Dec. 1 at home against Calgary.
