The old stomping ground has lost another hero. An icon from the word go, whether or not you paid any attention to the sport or not. Steve Yzerman has determined it was time to retire from the sport which gave him so much, and which he returned 10 fold. The Captain has given so many of us such wonderful memories during his illustrious career and we, the fans, will miss him dearly. Never in my memory has a player truly played with such heart and determination as Stevie Y consistently did year in and year out. He sacrificed personal goals for team success and it paid off in 3 cup triumphs.
It's been a great run Captain. Thank you so much for the memories. We'll miss you, but I'm sure we'll see you in the front office or in the booth. Good luck!
