Osgood Believes Yzerman's Return To Red Wings Is "Inevitable"
Worst kept secret in the game.
Makes me wonder if he’s spoken to him about the subject
I think we all feel his return is inevitable.
I think there is little doubt that Yzerman will be at the helm soon. Its too good of a story, too good of a fan marketing tool, and too perfect a relationship for anyone to pass up.
"Me guessing? Yeah, I think it’s inevitable that at some point in time he will be here. It just has to be the right moment. That’s kind of how I feel," Osgood told the Jamie and Stoney Show on 97.1 The Ticket, while clarifying he hasn't spoken with Yzerman since he changed roles with the Lightning.
Oh but you know they're just lying.
Yeah, I'm filing this under done deal. Silly everyone involved directly needs to pretend otherwise, but I understand.
Ken can go home, on his own terms, and be the experienced guiding hand in Seattle. Steve can come home and give the Wings the fresh look they require.
This will be a win-win.
Oscar wears the shirt on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
And risk having the Red Wings get penalized for tampering? Osgood still works for the Red Wings. If he did talk to Yzerman he would't have publicized it.
Does the sarcasm face not mean anything anymore?
Of course. We have literally seen them at events together lol.
Even if he had he wouldn't say anything about it. They know what should and shouldn't be said in public.
Honestly, what is there to point to him not joining us? He quit because he couldn't do the job to the best of his abilities away from his family, which is comfortable in Detroit, so if he takes a GM job it will be with Detroit. The only variable is if he doesn't want to GM anymore, which would make no sense since he built quite a name for himself and could be the savior of Detroit a second time. He would be the literal God of Detroit.
Unless he has a fantastic season at home with his family, and doesn't want to go back to 100,000 frequent flyer miles a year. But yes, other than the Lions every winning the Super Bowl, a successful Yzerman as GM is as close to a "key to the city" guy as there is in Detroit.
