The Lightning and Stevie, it appears, have been talking for quite some time.

Yzerman wants to be a GM. IIRC, the Wings recently extended both the GM and Assistant GM's contracts, so they're not going anywhere. Tampa could be a double edged sword ... it's not a hockey hotbed, so if he screws up, no one will notice ... on the other hand, if he screws up, he may never get another chance.

Stevie wants to run a Hockey Team. Ken Holland does not want to become President of the Wings, (Illitch asked him to & he said no) & then there's Jim Nill next in line under Holland. Yzerman has no chance of becoming GM for the Wings in the near future. WIsh the Guy well & let him go where his passions lead him to.

Yep yep. Emotions aside, there isn't anyone in the game today that can bump Holland and Nill. Let Tampa pay the $$$$ to let him get his feet wet (and I hear it's the most lucrative executive contract in NHL history).

No guarantees but i'd bet he comes back.

Hate to see it, but good for him. He gets a chance to fulfill his goal. I predict that he will be back with Detroit a few years down the road.:(
