Hilarious article.

I didn't know ESPN could write a hockey article worth reading.

Favourite line:

"With his patented "row boat" style skating, Yzerman weaved past Jaromir Jagr and his linemates, Alexi Yashin and Pierre Turgeon, and beat goaltender Tom Poti five-hole. When Glen Sather was asked why started the startled 42-year-old defenseman in net, Sather responded, "Dude, I'm Slats."

After a lost 2016-2017 season, the Wings won the NHL draft lottery and selected 7-foot-8, 410-pound Chinese goaltender Yao Pang with the first pick of the 2017 NHL draft. Yzerman the GM followed that up with the free agent signing of 30-year-old Sidney Crosby. Crosby was coming off his eighth Stanley Cup for the Pittsburgh Penguins, which he won alongside Marc-Andre Fleury and Alexander Ovechkin. The Penguins declared bankruptcy for the 23rd time in club history that summer, before NHL Commissioner Chris Chelios said, "Enough's enough. I can't have NHL players having their wages garnished, and if I were Gary Bettman, I'd worry about my personal safety." The Penguins were dissolved and the players declared free agents.

Funny ****

The Wings would falter following the 2014 Bill Wirtz led lockout. Wirtz, who had stopped televising Chicago Blackhawks road games in 2009, banned radio in 2010, barred all newspaper coverage in 2011 and in an unprecedented move, announced fans were no longer welcome to watch Hawks games for the 2013-14 season. At the end of the 2013-14 season, Wirtz announced, "Due to the spiraling costs of players salaries, the NHL has no choice but to cease operations until the system is fixed once and for all. The revenues and player costs do not add up."




I don't like the Penguins folding...but I do like them winning 8 cups with Fleury, Ovechkin, and Crosby
