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...

Red Wings fans still love Steve Yzerman

Yzerman will take a bona fide bow

Tuesday's announcement that Red Wings legend Steve Yzerman has committed to the Alumni Showdown on Dec. 31 at Comerica Park is terrific news. Finally, Yzerman will get the proper Detroit sendoff while wearing a Red Wings sweater. For me, there was always something incomplete about Yzermans career in Detroit. The last picture of him in a Red Wings uniform shouldn't be one...

Yzerman: No real desire to skate again

DETROIT -- If you're hoping to see No. 19 on the ice one more time in a Detroit Red Wings sweater, you'll likely be disappointed.

Time for Yzerman to rewrite the ending

Steve Yzerman last wore a Red Wings uniform on May 1, 2006. It was a playoff game against the Edmonton Oilers, and Yzerman, The Captain, and his Detroit Red Wings had just been eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs in the opening round. Many of us in Detroit still vividly remember the picture of Yzerman leaving the ice for the last time as a player -- No. 19 clutching the blade...
