Yzerman to head up Tampa Bay


After a lifetime with The Detroit Red Wings, Steve Yzerman has signed on as GM of the Tampa Bay Lightening!

My favorite player growing up, Yzerman was the stud leader behind this year's gold medal winning Canadian Hockey club. Like many, I assumed he was going to become the GM of Detroit, but perhaps Ken Holland, who has held that position since 1997 and is the 7th longest tenured GM currently in the NHL, didn''t want to give it up. Regardless, this move is good for hockey as Steve Yzerman will surely build the club in Tampa to become a perennial contender like Detroit has been for the past 20 years with Yzerman part of the organization.
