Predraft Yzerman Radio Interview

Below is a link to a 15 minute interview Yzerman did with Steve Duemig of 620wdae, the local Tampa sports radio station. Enjoy.

Good stuff - thanks for posting it.

Found it interesting that Salo is still a possibility to be resigned if we do not make a trade or sign a free agent.

Yzerman seemed to indicate that we may resign Lindback (who did not receive a qualifying offer) provided he is willing to sign for lower than the qualifying salary. If this is to happen, would be before July 1.

If we re-sign Lindback we're wagering heavily that a) Bishop doesn't get injured or b) one of either Gudlevskis or Vasilevskiy can play back-up in a pinch. Lindback has proven, outside 3 games last season, to be completely useless and worse than useless in a crunch (playoffs!) type situation. I cannot believe we don't have better options for a vet backup.

I think he's just being polite. Can't exactly say, "This guy sucked," or, "This guy's not an NHL goalie." We're talking about a guy who still speaks highly of Marty St. Louis despite reportedly hating him.

With Salo, I think he'd be okay with reduced minutes, much like Brewer. We'd just have to keep him away from slow partners. I hope there's a better option out there though, but there might not realistically be.

This is the most revealing I've ever heard Yzerman in an interview though. He seemed to be a little less guarded about Drouin, mentioned he expects Namestnikov to see some time next season... it was pretty fantastic by Yzerman's standards.

Well Salo might not need "managed minutes" if that means difficulty. Highest quali of comp, only guy besides palat to be +-0 every month. He only needs right partner. How the price for TOP4 D goes these days its only right he's still in plans. There are better players available but if they are worth of their salary is another story. I guess Brewer excelling in bottom pair why Salo isnt already signed. Because he aint really needed. Its for plan B for missing all TOP4 free agents. For security. And all teams are "all in" for those who are already not 40 so tb has edge on that.

Also Salo's real value is higher than he's shown because tb's system really is pathetic. MTL made jokes of us and behind Hedman Salo is only one who was proved he can play better system. I have high hopes Barberio on that because he has also suffered on system so because of that Salo is also not needed. But a surprise that he is still consired it is not.

Namestnikov must be consired because TJ might have to play top6 and Killorn center experiment wasnt very good. He could be good enough since we are pretty solid on wing.
