Tampa Bay hires Steve Yzerman as GM
 
Looks like Dougie Ballgame lost out to Steve Yzerman. I think it's a good hire by Tampa Bay although it will be weird to have Yzerman represent a club other than Detroit.

Yeah I think Tampa lucked out with getting him. He should be pretty good. But you're right, I'll have trouble envisioning him with another club.

Apparently Stevie Y was the Wild's first choice last season for the vacant GM position... :amazed:

They had gone through this a few months earlier when, unbeknown to most people, Yzerman nearly accepted the Minnesota GMs job.

Well that's interesting...

Well, once again a team screws up by picking Lawton before Yzerman...wait...what team was that again?

It's okay, they can hire Mike Modano a few years down the road before moving to Dallas.

Yzerman Story

I saw that.

then I thought about this.

It is interesting though...since he was never mentioned last summer, and Russo is basically on top of everything that happens Wild-wise...
