You Can't Be 'All In' If One Player Is Out

from Bob uff of Detroit Hockey Now,

It would be incorrect to suggest that Detroit Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman was shopping forward Tyler Bertuzzi. However, a rival NHL GM did confirm that Yzerman is calling teams. The Detroit GM isn’t offering them Bertuzzi. He’s just subtly gauging what interest there might be from them in acquiring Bertuzzi....

Former Red Wings forward McCarty played 13 seasons for the Red Wings, the majority of them with Yzerman as his captain. He understands succintly the way things work under Yzerman’s rule, and one of the keys is that everyone is on the same page.

Speaking on WoodwardSports.com, McCarty is acknowledging Bertuzzi’s belief that he has a right to choose not to get a vaccine. At the same time, McCarty also thinks that Tyler Bertuzzi must realize the internal strife he’ll be causing the team. Inside the tight-knit community of a hockey dressing room, being an individual won’t fly. Especially when doing so harms the group’s chances of success.

“I respect anybody’s decision,” McCarty confirmed. “In saying that in the hockey world is different.

“It would be tough, because you’ve got to – for lack of a better term – go to war and (you’ve got to know) that everybody’s all in.”

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.
