Red Wings' Holland contacted by other teams

Steve Yzerman

In hiring Steve Yzerman as its general manager, Detroit is bringing back a franchise hero - a man who led the city to championships as a player and whom it now hopes can do the same as an executive. "However, sources say Holland has been contacted by other teams, including Edmonton and Seattle", Dreger reported.

Yzerman had been the general of the Tampa Bay Lightning since 2010 and stepped down last September to take an advisory role.

The conference will be held at Little Caesars Arena at 3:00 p.m.

Yzerman is taking over a team that has missed the playoffs three straight years in its worst stretch since the early 1980s when the team was known locally as the "Dead Wings" and needed to give away a vehicle at each home game to get people to attend games.

Yzerman's return will be heralded in Detroit, and now he'll face more pressure as a front office member than he ever has.

Julian Assange hit embassy staff, says president of Ecuador
The first thing that everyone wanted to know was why the embassy had terminated their protection of Assange after seven years. The letter to Moreno is dated 10 April 2019 - a day before Assange was taken from the country's London embassy.

As the general manager, he'll have a chance to do it again.

Yzerman also said the move to a senior adviser was so that he could "spend more time with my family", and he still owns a home in metro Detroit where his family lives.

"We believe Steve Yzerman is the flawless choice", said Chris Ilitch, the president and chief executive of Ilitch Holdings, which holds for the Red Wings. "He built one of the finest organizations in the National Hockey League and lead us to the playoffs in six of the nine years he was with us, including three Conference Finals and one Stanley Cup Final". "He has been my mentor".

Yzerman joined the Red Wings in 1983 and played his entire career with the team, retiring in 2006 after 22 seasons. He is regarded as one of the best leaders in National Hockey League history.

He is the second-leading scorer in Detroit history behind Gordie Howe (1,809 points; 786 goals, 1,023 assists) and is the Red Wings' all-time assists leader. "It's time. Home is home".
