Steve Yzerman No.19

'Greatest Captain of any Sport'

Steve Yzerman, longtime captain of the Detroit Red Wings, is one of the most popular hockey players to play the game. His finesse and desire to play the game is what makes him a leader, and a winner. He's extremely gifted offensively, but changes from Scotty Bowman's defensive system helped him become hockey's greatest two-way forward.

Steve, over the years, has never requested a trade, nor asked for more money, He actually deferred some of his own salary to acquire Brett Hull. All of these qualities result in the loyalty of his legions of fans all over the world. He's been with the Wings since '83, and now seems as permanent as the franchise itself.

Thank You Stevie Y!!!

On this page I'll include an annotated list of all the star's film, television, and stage appearances. I'll include pictures and comments on each film. I'll also include sample sound and video files, if I can get my hands on some.

Here's an example of a format I might use for the entries in my filmography.

Raging Bull
(1978; Martin Scorsese, director)

A film reel; Size=240 pixels wide

Robert DeNiro's performance in this movie seems to go beyond performance: he sinks so deeply into the role of Jake LaMotta that you almost forget he's DeNiro. It's not a likable performance, and it's not an especially likable film (the fight sequences still make me wince), but it is perhaps the high point of his career.

Favorite Movie

In this area I'll talk about what I think is this star's best movie. I'll try to explain why I think it's their best work and why it's important to me personally.
