The Red Wings’ PR office confirmed that Steve Yzerman is not un-retiring this fall.
“I can’t speak to the text system issue, but Steve is definitely not coming out of retirement.”
Khan, Malik, and the Freep all have it.
Khan goes with possible explanation #1, that an as-of-yet unannounced alumni game is coming.
I still lean towards explanation #2. If Wings’ PR guy John Hahn (assuming he can be trusted) doesn’t know how that message was sent, it’s a sign of a major issue with how the Wings’ run the Internet side of their business.
