Well, I am sure I am not the only one who is doing this right now. Steve Yzerman has retired. The Captain. Stevie Y. Gone. I don't know if the Wings will be able to do anything without him. He was their captain since 1986, the longest tenure in NHL history. I never thought this would come. Never. I thought he would be like Howe and play into his 50's. Holy crap this sucks.
Now who will captain us? Lidstrom? Shanahan if he returns? Chelios perhaps?
Long live #19.
