My wife should be happy today. Its because her hockey hero Steve Yzerman has been named to the Hockey Hall of Fame. He will be joined by Luc Robitaille, Brett Hull, Brian Leetch and Lou Lamoriello.
I had it all set a few years ago where Tracey would meet Steve before a game in Edmonton. He then threw a monkeywrench into those plans by saying he was going to miss the opening two weeks of the season with a knee injury. She was beyond crushed!!!! I couldn't even tell her myself, I just handed her the copy of the story from the wire.
I keep telling her he will be here for the World Juniors. She doesn't believe me. She should.
