He seems like he has a great attitude in the TV interviews. Says all the right things...

They'll use a line like, we are strong with RHD and needed to solidify the LHD bla bla bla. I don't see him making it unless he goes on a tear.
One thing to take into consideration though. Last time around Yzerman learned the mistakes of Gretzky from 2006. That team brought experienced playes for the sake of it and lost. In 2010 they went with new blood. Let's hope that Yzerman hasn't forgotten 2006.
