Regner: Yzerman might never return to Red Wings

Steve Yzerman still might run the Detroit Red Wings someday, but it won't be anytime soon. Which isn't all that surprising to me. When news broke Monday that the former Red Wings captain had agreed to a four-year contract extension to remain as the Tampa Bay Lightning's VP and GM through the 2018-19 season, it reminded me of a conversation I had with Yzerman more than...

But that's the case, and the angry fans were front and center, loud and determined to vent on sports radio, even as late as Monday afternoon. To which I say, get over it. There's no way Yzerman would simply...
