Stevie Y to steer Lightning?

It's all over the web that longtime former Detroit Red Wings forward Steve Yzerman will be named the next general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning. My submission to Bolts owner Jeff Vinik that Mike Keenan is rumored to be available apparently has gone unheeded.

Whomever is chosen, the Southeast Division will have seen fully three-fifths of its GMs replaced for 2010-11: Florida (Tallon replaces Sexton), Atlanta (Dudley/Waddell), and Tampa Bay (???/Lawton). Press conference is scheduled for 3pm, and check in with our pals at Raw Charge for updates.

Next question: who do the Bolts tab as head coach? There's that Keenan guy...

UPDATE: Done deal. And they do sound rather stoked over at Raw Charge. Of course that's only 'cuz they don't want their collective pang of disappointment to slip out regarding the loss of their first choice for the position. ;)
