Red Wings welcome Steve Yzerman back

Nov 30, 2011, 9:35 PM EDT

Steve Yzerman departed the Detroit Red Wings organization to become the Tampa Bay Lightning GM starting in 2010-11, but the team and its fans still revere Stevie Y. (It probably helps that Yzerman’s Lightning are in the Eastern Conference, so the blood doesn’t have to boil that often.) Check out this video tribute to the great former captain and the crowd’s standing ovation.

    Created an account to write this one comment (man it’s a pain in the a** to comment on these NBC articles)….Steve Y is the greatest Captain of all time. World class player, world class human being.
