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.
