NHL.com is reporting that Livonia native Mike Modano will return for his 20th NHL season.

All I can say is...

You go Mike. He's never really been given the accolades that he really deserves. Spent his entire career with the Stars franchise.

Always liked Madano.

One of the best American born players. Great leader and team player.

Although, not what he once was, he can still contribute and should be able to retire a Star when he sees fit.
I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, I'm going to mop the floor with your face.
I said, You'll be sorry.
He said, Oh, yeah? Why?
I said, Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well.

I wholeheartedly agree.

Modano's a class act and a fantastic hockey player. A first ballot hall of famer, no question.

He's a good contributor. There's a reason he can't seem to stay captain for too long, but if he can stay healthy for a full season he's got the speed, hands, and grit to get it done. One of USA hockey's finest of all time. I can especially respect that he's stayed with the same team his entire career. Also, can respect that he was born in Livonia like my father was. thumbup.gif

That's because Hull wasn't born in America. He became a U.S. Citizen.

Chelios was much better than Modano.

Modano is borderline HoFer imho, personally I would not put him in, but he will probably make it because he is one of the best American players ever.

You're the man, Mike! Good for the Dallas Stars, for recognizing one of the best players ever in their franchise, for what he's done for the team and for hockey. He is a class act! thumbup.gif

Love ya, Mikey Mo! thumbup.gif

Madonna can still produce points, but isn't really a guy they can count on anymore to lead the team.

Wouldn't be surprised if he winds up a 3rd liner next year.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Modano is a real class act. He was better when younger, but he's adjusted his play to stay relevant nonetheless. The Dallas organization is lucky to have him.
