Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman played a big role in luring Bobby Ryan to the Detroit Red Wings.
“The passion that just comes through for the Red Wings through him is contagious,” Ryan said. “I walked out of the room (after talking with Yzerman) and told my wife, ‘I think we’re signing in Detroit.’ I didn’t feel I needed to hear anything else from anybody.” The Red Wings are coming off a painful season where they posted a 17-49-5 record, but Yzerman's presence gives them a lot of credibility. He was the architect of the Tampa Bay Lightning squad that just won a championship, so there's reason to believe he can guide the Red Wings through their rebuild and into a serious contender too.
