I'd love to see Mikey Mo play a year for the Wings. Yeah, he's old and all, but he's a classy two way player, he was born in Michigan, and he would be a good fit for just a year. He and Nick (and anyone else thinking about retirement) can make one final run for the Cup. For the right price, he would fit in nicely on the third line and give us a bit of a scoring threat. He can't have his number 9 though. ;)

Filppula-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Franzen-Zetterberg-Hudler
Cleary-Modano-Bert
Eaves-Helm-Abby
Gritty FA, Draper, Ritola

I wouldn't mind that one bit.

I would not put him as the 3rd line center but move him to a wing position on the 3rd line.

It's looking more and more like Mike Modano's days in Dallas are numbered. Also, it's looking like he might still wanna play NHL hockey next season. So the question is, for the right price, would you be okay with Mike Modano playing in the Winged Wheel? I remember several years ago Mike said he would love to come back home and play some day. And I know he is near the twilight of his career, but he did have pretty good numbers last year considering he was on Dallas' 3rd and 4th lines all season. What do you guys think?

If he comes to us for free, like say an internship, I wouldn't have a problem with it.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I've always been a Mike Modano fan, but he doesn't fill any significant needs for the team, which has a pretty full roster already. If he wasn't a Michigan native, we wouldn't even be having this conversation.

I would be okay with it IF the price were right and IF he had to earn his ice-time like any other forward. So that means that if he is taking a spot from say Eaves or Miller or someone else it's because he outplayed them in camp/a number of games to get their.

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

Thanks alot to the brilliant mod who decided to merge my POLL with a current Modano thread. I wanted to see how the numbers broke down with Wings fans wanting him for the right price. But now the poll is long gone. AWESOME. Sheer brilliance there moderator! ;) Ya know, you could have just asked me to lock the poll to prevent comments and just keep it a poll only. Thanks again! :rolleyes:

Yeah, cause my legitimate poll being scrapped is perfectly reasonable. Yeah you're right, I should have no beef with that at all. :rolleyes: Get lost kid.

1) I'm not your kid

2)It's the internet get over it

3) You do not pay a cent for this site. The moderators could very well ban you for no reason at all, and you would still be owed nothing. I really am sorry if you were insanely interested about seeing how much of the LGW posters either agreed or disagreed with the potential signing, but frankly, It doesn't matter, as we are not Holland and free agents aren't signed via LGW Comittee. In the end, it really does nothing, and seeing as there was already a subject on the same issue being discussed, it is understandable that they would merge in. Contrary to your beliefs, the vast majority of this site doesn't want to hear your sobb story, filled with sarcasm and condescending remarks.

I retract my post after seeing Modo's stats over the past 5 years. Although he could help on the PP, the Wings PP is already awesome. Don't know if he's worth tying up a roster spot for.

Trade Hudler away for draft picks and put Modano in his spot.Do that,and you've got me sold.


:lol: You've got to admit it's a bit of a stretch to turn this into a Hudler discussion.

You must really be down about that 20 seconds you wasted on reading my post. Especially considering you've now wasted several minutes in replying. Point is, there is a feature in creating polls which you can set to make it just a poll. So there being another Modano thread doesn't mean my poll should have just been deleted. I may have been a tad peeved about it, but I still have a legit beef. You on the other hand, must be one bored little boy to make this much out of my circumstance. Run along now little tyke. It's way past your bedtime.

1) It's moreso out of boredom than really "being down".
2)You do not really have legit beef. This Website Owes or Promises you nothing. You do not pay for anything. Your sense of entitlement is hilarious.
3)Once again you act as if age is relevant to this situation, when it is not at all.
4) The reason you were upset was a poll about how people you will never meet and have no ability to influence an outcome on the subject felt about it. Seeing as there was already a thread that was essentially discusing the exact same thing, I just found your anger comical.

Who cares if it's people that aren't in the Wings front office? I would like to know other people opinions. Hence, anyone being on this particular website. Why are you here if you're just discussing things with people that don't make decisions for the Red Wings?? You make no sense buddy. You've contradicted the whole point of being a member of a forum. :lol:

P.S. Like you didn't rate my posts negatively?? Pshhh yeah right kid. And I only rated one of your posts negatively. So looks like there are other members who think you're a really smart guy. ;)
