Shawn Windsor Detroit Free Press Published 12:28 AM EDT Sep 14, 2018 Steve Yzerman is a man for our time. And a man for our city. You need him. The Detroit Red Wings need him. The Detroit sporting scene needs him. Desperately. News of his impending return to the place that made him tore through Hockeytown this week, sending Wings’ fans into near cardiac arrest, spawning a deluge of hopeful Twitter GIFs. This is understandable. Not just because the Wings haven’t contended for a Stanley Cup in almost a decade, but because the city’s professional sports landscape is as barren as the surface of Mars. Yzerman would bring water. He would bring life. Analysis: Why Red Wings will keep top prospects line for training camp He isn’t just the Captain. He’s a captain who set out on his own and became a general. And his announcement earlier this week that he was moving home couldn’t … [Read more...] about Detroit sports desperately need Steve Yzerman, not just Red Wings

Helene St. James Detroit Free Press Published 9:14 p.m. UTC Jul 12, 2018 The timing might be right to recognize one of the greatest players in Detroit Red Wings history. Sergei Fedorov is a three-time Stanley Cup champion and first-ballot Hockey Hall of Famer. In the prime of his career, in the mid-90s through the mid-aughts, he was considered one of hockey’s greatest players, a combination of uncontainable speed and skill. So why isn’t Fedorov’s No. 91 hanging from the rafters of Little Caesars Arena next to the retired numbers of Steve Yzerman, Nicklas Lidstrom, Gordie Howe, Ted Lindsay, Terry Sawchuk, Alex Delvecchio and Sid Abel? And is it time to change that? Had Fedorov played out his NHL career with the Wings, there’s no doubt his number would have been retired by now. Steve Yzerman retired from hockey after the 2005-06 season, and the Wings raised his No. 19 on Jan. 2, 2007. Nicklas Lidstrom retired after the 2011-12 season; his number … [Read more...] about Should Detroit Red Wings retire Sergei Fedorov’s No. 91? It’s time.
