Yzerman Expected Back

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
The future of Detroit Red Wings captain Steve Yzerman will be decided this week. It's expected the 40-year-old will play one final season with the Wings -- although it has yet to be announced -- and will sit down with GM Ken Holland sometime next week to discuss his future. The Nepean native has kept himself in good shape during the lockout and still has the desire to play. He also received an invite from GM Wayne Gretzky to attend Team Canada's Olympic training camp in Kelowna, so another shot at winning a gold medal in the upcoming Games in Turin, Italy, is also a good motivator to return for another NHL season. It would only make sense for Yzerman to come back. Detroit fans deserve the chance to say a proper goodbye and the vision of Yzerman, laying on the ice with a bloody towel over his face after getting a puck in the eye against Calgary in the 2004 playoffs, is not the way he should be remembered.
