This has been a dream of Yzerman ever since he got into the front office side of the NHL nearly a decade ago. Perfect scenario for him. Back with the Wings and more importantly, back with his family in Detroit. Wings are getting one of the best hockey executives in the league.
Regardless of DET asking TB in March to talk to Yzerman, he always wanted to get back home to Detroit. His family lived there during his time in TB. Yzerman reportedly wanted the Wings job before coming to #GoBolts But DET had already re-signed GM Ken Holland & Asst. GM Jim Nill
The #LGRW have announced former player and former #GoBolts GM Steve Yzerman has replaced Ken Holland as GM for the Original Six franchise. Holland will remain as Snr Vice President. Good move by Detroit, could make them a powerhouse again. What do you think? #NHL #Hockeytwitter
Final show for @TBLPowerPlay (this season) starts airing tomorrow. @TheFourthPeriod hopped on and we tried to dissect what in the world happened in the first week of the #StanleyCupPlayoffs. Many thanks to @SammonSez & #GoBolts fans for dealing with me this season.
Yzerman on time as adviser with #GoBolts: "I enjoyed the role and being a part of it, but truly I like being a GM, and being in charge. To come back to the Red Wing organization, it wasn't a difficult decision....the decisions weren't made at the same time, a year apart."
#RedWings got permission from #GoBolts to talk to Steve Yzerman in March. He thanked Vinik for his time w/ the Lightning.He called Tampa: “A fantastic hockey town.” More: He’s disappointed he couldn’t win a Cup in TB. “They're close, and I hope they do get that Stanley Cup."
Statements from #GoBolts owner Jeff Vinik and GM Julien BriseBois on Steve Yzerman’s departure
“May he build the second-best team in the #NHL.” A Jeff Vinik statue needs to be in the works. Hasn’t just changed the Lightning, but he’s had as big of a positive impact on Tampa as anyone I can recall. #GoBolts
