Yzerman and Cooper creating the “Lightning way” in Tampa Bay

Quietly head coach Jon Cooper has turned the Tampa Bay Lightning into one of the best defensive teams in the National Hockey League. Remember the old saying the best offense is a good defense, well not in Tampa Bay. For the Lightning the best defense is a good offense and they have been excelling at this style of play through the first 20 games of the NHL season. There has been a...

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 a decade ago...

Regner: As always, Yzerman put his team first

It never even dawned on me that some Red Wings fans would be miffed at Steve Yzerman for not showing up at the ceremony retiring Nicklas Lidstrom's No. 5 last Thursday. 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 snub Lidstrom...

Red Wings fans still love Steve Yzerman

DETROIT -- There are few players who evoke the reaction that Steve Yzerman does in Detroit. Although Yzerman is incredibly busy with his main job as general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning and his side job as general manager of Team Canada, he managed to make it to the Alumni Showdown against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Comerica Park Tuesday. Yzerman was the last Red Wing introduced...

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 that...

Yzerman commits to Alumni Showdown

As if Red Wings fans needed another reason to go to the Maple Leafs vs. Red Wings Alumni Showdown on New Year's Eve. But they got one when former longtime captain Steve Yzerman, currently the general manager for the Tampa Bay Lightning, announced Tuesday that he would participate in the festivities. "Steve is one of the greatest Red Wings players ever," Wings general manager Ken...
