Post Yzerman named VP..
It's a bit old at this point, but for those that don't keep up with hockey all that much, but keep up with the board it's worth posting... Steve Yzerman was named VP of the Red Wings... Classy move by a classy organization... Much more than you can say of the Lions... Where's Porchers position? Or Moores? Or Barry's??? Barry seems to be getting slightly more involved, but IMO the team is using him more for marketing than anything... Our consumate pros and "lifers" seemed to get screwed by the Lions...

Anyhow... Here's the Stevie article...

Yzerman new Red Wings' vice president

Steve Yzerman joined the Detroit front office on Monday, becoming the vice president of the Red Wings.

Yzerman, the former captain, helped guide Detroit to Stanley Cup victories in 1997, '98 and 2002. He retired in July.

"After retiring as the longest serving captain in NHL history and the on-ice leader of our franchise for 23 years, it is only fitting that he join our management team," Red Wings owner Mike Ilitch said in a statement.

Yzerman ranks eighth all-time in the NHL record books with 185 playoff points. The 10-time All-Star led all active players last season with 1,755 regular-season points, a total that trails only five others in league history.

His No. 19 jersey will be retired Jan. 2 and hoisted alongside Gordie Howe's No. 9, Terry Sawchuk's No. 1, Ted Lindsay's No. 7, Alex Delvecchio's No. 10, and Sid Abel's No. 12.

I'm gonna miss watching him play! I watched the game the other night and it seemed weird not to see #19 out there:

Now if we can just get Detroit to put a HUGE puck somewhere in the city w/#19 on it, we'll be doing just fine:

When they dress the "Spirit of Detroit" every year down town... I think the generic Red Wings jersey should be switched to a #19 Yzerman jersey...
