from Damian Cristodero of Lightning Strikes,

Yzerman, 48, On Tuesday took some time to share his thoughts on several topics, from his evolution as a general manager to the difficulty, or ease, depending on how you look at it, of maintaining his organizaional vision on the NHL level and with AHL Syracuse.

On his contract extension: Four years have gone by very quickly. Initially, when I was excited about the opportunity and Jeff offered me the position, first and foremost was my meeting with him and how much I enjoyed talking with him and his vision of the organization, and that hasn’t changed to date. We’ve got a lot to do. We’ve made a lot of changes that you see on the ice and off the ice. We’ve got a lot of work left to do and as an organization as a whole and a team (we're) going in the right direction. I want to continue with the process, and I’m grateful to get the opportunity to continue.
