Yzerman is the longest serving captain not only in the NHL but in major North American sports. He led the Red Wings out of the horribleness of the 80s and into their run as an elite team. He built the culture that Lidstrom inherited.
I love Lidstrom a lot, but Steve Yzerman is a special case.
non-Jewish people going on today about “reclaiming” Anne Frank as a “bi icon” or w/e make me really uncomfortable, because it has this ring of “all this time I thought she was just some Jewish kid, but now it turns out she’s one of us!!!!” like if you didn’t find Anne Frank’s story moving until you realized she shared some marker with you then maybe you should reconsider your whole approach to this whole “empathy” thing.
