Chris Chelios On Steve Yzerman's Return

04/19/2019 at 10:25am EDT

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

“Yzie brings instant credibility, and that’s not taking anything away from Kenny,” Chelios told MLive. “Sometimes it’s a player you acquire in the draft or a trade that gives you that boost. Yzie, from up in the press box, will have that effect. He speaks with conviction. The players will want to play for him. It’s going to be great.

“It didn’t take him long to build that team in Tampa. His work ethic as a GM was the same as a player. He’s going to be chomping at the bit to get the team ready for training camp. … The timing is perfect. He’s ready to take on the new challenge and I’m sure he’s looking forward to it.”

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
