Philadelphia Flyers CEO On Steve Yzerman

from Sam Carchidi of Philly.com,

Steve Yzerman and Ron Francis are among the candidates to fill the Flyers' general-manager vacancy, Dave Scott confirmed Tuesday.

Scott, the CEO of the Flyers' parent company, Comcast Spectacor, would not confirm Chuck Fletcher, 51, as a candidate, but sources indicate he is high on the team's wish list. Now a New Jersey Devils adviser, he had a mostly successful nine-year run as the Minnesota Wild's GM. He was fired after the Wild's first-round playoff exit last season....

Yzerman, who resigned as Tampa Bay's general manager before the season, was a Hall-of-Fame player with Detroit. Scott did not sound confident that Yzerman could be lured to Philadelphia.

"I spent some time in Detroit, and I know Yzerman a little bit," Scott said. "My sense is he's pretty committed to someday getting back to Detroit. I think his family is still there. He really put roots down there, and [Red Wings GM] Kenny Holland is getting to a point in his life he's probably going to do different things someday."

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.
