RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Steve Yzerman.
It feels weird saying anything negative about the captain, who's as much a Detroit staple as cars, music and summer construction. Just keep in mind Yzerman is 40 and skating on some bad wheels these days; in short, bet with your head, not with your heart when considering No. 19. He might be able to sneak through 50-60 points on guile and savvy, but the upside isn't much more than that.
