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 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.
