How The Wings Were Built

from Bob Duff of Detroit Hockey Now,

Tyler Bertuzzi is among a growing minority on the roster of the Detroit Red Wings. He was here prior to Steve Yzerman taking over as GM of the Red Wings – and he’s still here.

Threre’s not many of them left. Bertuzzi is one of just eight holders from the pre-Yzerman era on Detroit’s current NHL roster that is off to a 2-0-1 start to the 2021-22 season.

“Obviously it’s been a tough couple of years but that happens sometimes in sports,” Bertuzzi assessed of the team’s rebuild. “We have a lot of young guys coming in right now that are earning jobs and playing big roles that will help in the long run.

“Just the chemistry and getting everyone together, building from the core and out. It feels good to get off to this start. We just gotta keep it going.”

Let’s look at how rapidly Yzerman has reshaped this Red Wings team during his 2+ seasons in charge.

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.
