The Family Guy term “Grinds My Gears” applies to the following “final topic” from Sunday’s SportsWorks round table discussion on Fox 2, in which Bob Wojnowski, Jamie Samuelssen and Dan Miller discussed the following:
The NHL Playoffs were last on the rundown and the guys talked if Tampa Bay’s success helps or hurts the chances of the Red Wings getting Steve Yzerman.
I believe that Steve Yzerman has built his Tampa Bay Lightning team to win a Stanley Cup, and until/unless his team wins the Stanley Cup, he’s not going to leave the Lightning. Even if Tampa does win the Cup, I don’t see Yzerman leaving a team that’s going to be elite for the next half-decade (at least) to have every move micro-analyzed by the media.
Is it possible that Yzerman may return one day? Sure, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
