DETROIT – With Wednesday’s press conference at Comerica Park behind them, the first question on everyone’s mind is whether the likes of Steve Yzerman, Nicklas Lidstrom and Sergei Fedorov will be playing for the Wings in the alumni game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Wings general manager Ken Holland will call them all.
“The people we’ve asked are interested, they’re just making sure their schedules allow it,” Holland said. “We’ve announced what we know so far, but we’ll have 30 or 40 and maybe even 50 before we get into the game.
“I’m hoping a lot of them are going to play,” Holland continued. “We’re going to try and get as many of the greatest Red Wings to play in the 90-plus year history of this great organization.”
