Is Stevie Y ready to say goodbye?

The Red Wings have called a 1 p.m. news conference today, which has led to speculation Steve Yzerman will retire.

Neither the Nepean native, nor his agent Larry Kelly could be reached for comment last night.

Yzerman, 41, has spent his entire career with the Wings and has been contemplating his future since the club was eliminated from the playoffs in the first round.

He said last week he would make a decision by July 1.

Wings GM Ken Holland and coach Mike Babcock have both been encouraging Yzerman to stay.
