from the Detroit Free Press, The Wings have said they want Yzerman, 40, back, but they probably can't offer him much more than $1.5 million to $2 million. That's because starting Aug. 1, teams have to operate within a salary cap that starts out at $21.5 million and hits a hard ceiling at $39 million.
"You cannot exceed the cap," Nill said. "Alarms will go off -- bells and whistles will start. Anytime you go to make a move, it's monitored by ourselves internally and by the league, and they will not OK any moves if you are in that position."
The longtime Wings captain plans to meet Wednesday in Toronto with general manager Ken Holland and vice president Jimmy Devellano.
