A Sad Day In Detroit

    Not that any of you soccer hethens will care...

    Steve Yzerman announced his retirement today from the Detroit Red Wings. Stevie spent all 22 years of his career in Detroit. That is unheard of in any sport. We all knew it was coming, but some hoped for one more year. I, personally, was hoping he would retire because he was just getting tired. Still, it's tough to see a legend retire.

    Stevie is probably the best representative of any professional sport.

    god, at first I thought he died!

    Anyways, that is sad he is retiring. I used to love going to wing's games and watching him play.

    Wow! I thought by the title that someone must have died.

    Yzerman has had an impressive career and I think he is an outstanding example as a sportsman.

    That's heathen. And no she's not - she's too sweet and nice to be considered a heathen. I should know. :biggrin:

    This sucks .... :cry: . A great career comes to an end, would've hoped he could've been lured in to complete one another season, which might have ended his career more proper. Instant all-star.

    I'm not sure if I would have liked to have seen an Yzerman retirement tour the likes Lemieux had. This way is short and sweet and seems to match his personality when it comes to things like this.

    Some of us soccer heathens watch hockey too.

    This is a good way to go out. The 2001/02 finals will always stand out for me, on one leg he was still the best guy on the ice. Extremely classy guy.

    Yeah, he had lots of problems and taking the Lemieux way out would be far worse than retiring now. Hope they can find him something visible to do in the Wings organization.

    I have never been a big Red Wings fan (Go Leafs!), but I have always been a huge fan of Steve Yzerman.
