Derek Lalonde explains what drove him off social media

Even amidst the high tensions and uncertainties that the NHL trade deadline week presents, the Detroit Red Wings stand poised and confident under the stewardship of General Manager Steve Yzerman.

Why Derek Lalonde Left Social Media

Despite distancing himself from social media to avoid the vitriol often directed at public figures in sports, Lalonde expressed a wish for the kind of insider information that platforms offer during the trade deadline.

“I got off of social media about a year ago, when I started to get, you’re the worst coach I’ve ever seen in the history of earth DMs,” coach Derek Lalonde said Wednesday, approximately 48 hours before Friday’s 3 p.m. deadline. “This is the one time I wish I was on it, because you kind of get the inside scoops and everything.”

In Steve Yzerman We Trust

The Red Wings, with a commendable season record entering Wednesday’s game against the Colorado Avalanche, find themselves securely within the Eastern Conference playoff bracket. This positioning offers Yzerman the strategic flexibility to either maintain the team’s current composition or enhance it through acquisitions. Reflecting on his experiences, Lalonde draws parallels to his time in Tampa, emphasizing the profound trust he and the team place in Yzerman’s decision-making abilities, both for the immediate and long-term success of the organization.

“We have full trust in Steve,” Lalonde said. “It was a similar situation when I was in Tampa. I think it is real when you have a trust in what your manager is doing. I sleep a lot easier at night knowing he is going to do what is best for the organization currently and in the future, too.”
