STEVE YZERMAN IS BACK, BABY!

Recommended Posts


Ericcson has one year left on his deal. No point buying him out or anything. It's a sunk cost. The Abdelkader is what it is. You can bury it in the minors if you need cap space(they won't) or you can play him and have 'grit/leadership' in the lineup with no production.

Helm has a dimension?

I mean, it WAS a pretty great 30 seconds, but the Wings shouldn't still be on the hook for that a full decade later.

Rumor is Yzerman will reach out to Sergei.

Would be a big get imo.  He was (is?) the GM of CSKA Moscow.  Especially with the chance Podkolzin falls in the draft......

Would Sergei truly be a big get, or are we fan-boying a bit too much?  Honest question.

Do you even have to ask? Look at the moves he's made https://www.sbnation.com/nhl/2013/10/10/4823584/sergei-fedorov-contract-khl-retirement

As GM of the most successful (although it still is KHL/Russia we are talking so it isn't very fair to every club) KHL franchise, I'm hoping he would at least have some good relations and insight into the players there.  Looking at Tampa, Stevie definitely doesn't mind Russian players.  Mostly I just want Podkolzin to slip and Fedorov to work some magic to bring him over from the KHL faster than expected.
