Ranger, his agent, and Yzerman had plenty of private conversations while he was under contract.
"I've had some very good conversations with him," Yzerman said. "He's a really nice young man. I don't want to speak publicly on his behalf, but he's sorting out with what he wants to do with his hockey career and with his life. At this time he's not prepared to commit to coming back to the NHL, and I respect his position. I left it with him that the door is open if at some point he decides, 'I'm ready to play. I want to play for the Lightning,' let me know. And if you want to play but feel it's best that you need a fresh start, let me know as well. I want to work with him. ... We'll do what's right for Paul and we'll do what's right for the Lightning."

Ranger's agent, Joe Resnick, who declined to comment on his client's situation, said Yzerman has hit just the right tone.

"Steve Yzerman has been a gentleman throughout this process," Resnick said.
