The Captain was (until last night’s ceremony) a man of few words, therefore I won’t drag this out…the numbers speak for themselves. What his ridiculous statistical achievements don’t tell you is that he was the classiest player to ever play the game. The greatest captain of any sports team in history. He redefined himself as a player near the pinnacle of his career and sacrificed points for the benefit of this team. Yzerman will forever fill the heads and our hearts of Detroit with fond memories.Most memorable moment: as played out and unimaginative as it is…”the shot”. 1996, Double OT of game 7 against the St. Louis Blues, #99 muffs the puck over and Stevie-Y rockets a slap shot far side of John Casey, off the bar and in. They didn’t go on to win the Cup until next year. But I will never, ever forget that goal so long as I live.
Thank you, #19.
