Of course not. It's the principle. Blake at the time was what Yzerman was to Detroit. A guy who had been with the team his entire career, captain, fans adored him, the whole nine yards.

Do you think regardless of how negotiations would go, that Yzerman would turn his back on the fans like that? I can't be the captain of this tem because they didn't offer me enough money. Sorry little Jimmy, I'm not captain of this team anymore because I'm not getting the $$$$ I expect. I sure as hell don't.
