Jagr: Admiration for Yzerman prevents comparisons to Larkin

Jaromir Jagr isn't interested in hearing any comparisons involving Detroit Red Wings rookie Dylan Larkin and Hall of Famer Steve Yzerman.The Florida Panthers' veteran forward meant no disrespect to the 19-year-old Larkin, who became the first Red Wings rookie to play in an NHL All-Star Game since Yzerman in 1984. It's just that the 43-year-old Jagr admittedly is still wowed by Yzerman...

Yzerman Deliberating On Drouin’s Destination

Tampa Bay Lightning GM Steve Yzerman is in no rush to deal 2013 third overall pick Jonathan Drouin. Could the move be made soon? Of course, but only if the deal is commensurate with what Yzerman believes to be equal value for a developing young superstar. A trade that benefits the Bolts. According to Sportsnet: “Drouin, who requested a trade from the Tampa Bay Lightning in November...

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...

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 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...
