Brad Galli tweets,

Steve Yzerman meeting with reporters after trading for Alex Nedeljkovic.

“We have high hopes for Alex based off his performance this year in Carolina,” the Red Wings GM said.

Steve Yzerman on adding players in Leddy and Nedeljkovic: “We’re trying to improve our team. Ultimately, our goal is to build a playoff team, a Stanley Cup contender. That hasn’t changed.”

In the interim, Yzerman said, they want to add talent to help young players grow.

Steve Yzerman said he is happy using some assets on good players to help the Red Wings young guys.

“We’re not gonna mortgage or sell all of our assets off. There’s a balance,” he said.

Steve Yzerman on the Red Wings trading one or both of their first round picks:

“Trading up or back scenarios are really decisions made during the draft, kinda when you see how things are playing out.”

Truthfully RM, any employ of the Wings should not be asking questions at the pressers.

Galli…

Steve Yzerman said he wants Tyler Bertuzzi to stay in the Red Wings organization. His goal is to work on a deal to keep him here.

That’s a true statement; we’ve seen enough “puff” over the years to know better by now.

I just meant in general, though. wink

I understand RM, maybe have Carley hold the mic or something.

Galli…

On why the Hurricanes would be willing to part with Alex Nedeljkovic, Steve Yzerman said we’d have to ask them.

And I believe that, but also would not be surprised if he is traded tomorrow

I don’t know what her background or aspirations are, but she seems like a good kid and someone who can provide a ray of sunshine even in the darkest moments.

Such is the magic and mystery… dare I say “mystique” of Stevie *#$%@& Yzerman.

Yzerman may just be falling on the grenade, but stated it was his decision the last 2 years on Cholo’s up and down movement.

Pretty much confirms the Mark Divver story from several weeks ago.

Hoo boy. There are about a dozen ways a statement like that can get you in trouble these days, my friend.

I wonder what the issue is because the kid had back-to-back stellar years at Quinnipiac. Money? Expectations? Whatever it is, it’ll be interesting to see what happens with him.

OTC, I can see that now but nothing intended except what I wrote.

One more important thing SY said “we need to have a competitive team FOR OUR YOUNG GUYS”.

Oh, I get it completely, Paul. I’m just saying that in the world we live in today something as benign as that can be turned into a whole “cancel culture” event in a heartbeat. It’s exactly what your “Who said it?” post was all about.

It’s a sad commentary on how far things have devolved in this country.

I understand OTC, I just left the comment in case it was spotted and taken out of text.
