Tonight, one of our own goes into the Hall. No disrespect to Brett Hull and Luc Robitaille, who also played for our beloved Winged Wheel, but tonight’s a night for our Stevie.
I won’t pretend that I can add anything that hasn’t already been said about The Captain, but I couldn’t in good conscience allow Monday, November 9th to go by without adding The Production Line to the long list of those that have thanked Mr. Yzerman today.
As Chief says in a must-read, he may have been loaned to Canada from time to time, but he’s ours. He embraced Detroit and the Red Wings in a way that almost no athlete ever does: an entire, two-decade career dedicated to one owner, one organization, one uniform, and one group of fans.
These two videos say more in a few seconds than any article could. Enjoy, and think of Stevie tonight.
