Yzerman and Cooper creating the “Lightning way” in Tampa Bay

Quietly head coach Jon Cooper has turned the Tampa Bay Lightning into one of the best defensive teams in the National Hockey League. Remember the old saying the best offense is a good defense, well not in Tampa Bay.

Regner: Yzerman might never return to Red Wings

Steve Yzerman still might run the Detroit Red Wings someday, but it won't be anytime soon. Which isn't all that surprising to me.

Yzerman will take a bona fide bow

Tuesday's announcement that Red Wings legend Steve Yzerman has committed to the Alumni Showdown on Dec. 31 at Comerica Park is terrific news. Finally, Yzerman will get the proper Detroit sendoff while wearing a Red Wings sweater. For me, there was always something incomplete about Yzermans career in Detroit. The last picture of him in a Red Wings uniform shouldn't be one that...
