    The Captain is expected to announce his retirement any moment.

    After 23 years.

    Best wishes in life after playing, Stevie Y.

    Thanks for all of the great memories, and always playing with class and dedication.

    They should put a pic of Stevie in the Dictionary next to the definition of "class".

    This guy was an amazing player, and an even better person.

    Dang...the guy was a Red Wing for almost half of my life. Class act from start to finish. Definitely brings up strong emotions to think about it.

    May life bring you the best of everything, Stevie Y.

    He HAS played with some great players, if you think of the list...

    Chelios
    Shanahan
    Fedorov
    Konstaninov
    Fetisov
    Larionov
    Coffey
    Hasek
    Murphy
    Lidstrom
    Hull
    Robataille

    You could get a whole team of Hall of Famers from the list of guys who have played with Yzerman.

    One of their best players at the end of the season, hopefully he comes back at least as a assistant coach to motivate them.

    I'm sure the hometown newspapers are going to be all over this tommorrow.

    I'll try to keep the board posted on that stuff.

    Hail to the Captain!

    The Yzerman jersey will never go out of style in MoTown.

    Not quite like my Fedorov Jersey.

    He's stated for a while now that he has already figured that into his reirement.

    Somewhere in the front office first though I think.

    Probably just to keep regular hours and spend time with his family like a normal dad and husband.

    The longest tenure as an NHL Captain in the history of the NHL. 20 years.

    Man, that's impressive.

    This team will have a big hole at leadership to fill now.

    He was a great player, a nine-time NHL All-Star, 6th all time in NHl career points with 692 goals, 1063 assists, and 1755 points. What a career!

    He's just 60 or so shy of Gordie Howe's point total.

    That's impressive, with the way the league went low scoring there in the end of the 90's and early 2000's.

    Wings all time leader in post season goals, assists, and games.

    Regular season, Wings' 1st on assists, 2nd in goals, 3rd in games.
