Anchors discussing the viable possibility of Modano finishing out his playing career on a 1 year deal in Detroit. Saying it makes sense and that he fits the system as long as he can deal with the possibilities of Babcock benching him. They weren't even suggesting that this was being rumored about, just that they would like it to happen.

I think it's a good idea if the price is right. Gives us some PP options if things aren't working out well.

If it's around $1 and we can just not re-sign Miller and still have $1.2ish to spend, then I'm happy with signing Modano.

I would be ecstatic if the Wings signed Modano.

If Modano signs with the Wings, I think this year's team would be on a mission to win the Cup just for him.

I dont think he has much left in the tank, but if the price is right it wouldnt be such a bad deal. As the other poster said, 1 Million would be about it. Highly doubt it would happen though..

Remember Kenny said he is keeping 500k for binging up in case of injury so we will have 1-1.5 mill to spend unless we get rid of someone and we need a 6th d-man but it could happen!

Would it be worth it if the Wings had to put up a two year deal, though, as TSN suggested a few minutes ago?

If the price is right it is a nice little motivational signing - if that is needed. Why the hell not

Modano - 2 years, 1 million and .750.... As long as he understand that he may be benched at times depending on the need.

With Tatar and Mursak knocking on the door, I wouldn't want to see Modano signed for more than one year. This would likely mean that Miller and Ritola are gone, especially if a fighter is brought in.

He has said in the local papers here that the 4 teams he would play for are Kings, Yokes, Ducks, & Sharks. He wants to be close to DFW.

If he'd take an entry level contract with bonuses, I'd take him, but he is old and slow.

Modano is lazy and he sucks!

I don't see this having any traction. There's a rumor that Holland offered Lilja $1 mil. Even without Miller, I don't think the money and roster space is there. And I'm 100% positive Holland isn't going to let Ritola slip away, especially after seeing Quincey and Leino doing well after losing them.

I'd rather have Miller right now. He worked his ass off, shut down on the PK, and would chip in a spectacular goal every 30 games or so. Mike would be great to have, but I don't want him in lieu of anyone of the guys we have now... Except Bertuzzi of course.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

This thread has been closed due to emotions being higher than people's ability to read, interpret, and properly respond to simple posts.

Not what the Wings need, but I certainly wouldn't complain about it. I'd rather see Modano signed than Maltby.

Miller is great and all, but a big reason this team struggled in the playoffs was because players like him and Eaves just didn't do anything.. our 4th line was virtually useless because the only player that could hit was Abdelkadar... Modano would this team 3 dangerous lines. They would all have a good two way center, a sniper, and good net presence... this would be a great move. Plus, like someone else said, it would give the team (and Modano) motivation.

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Franzen-Flip-Bertuzzi
Hudler-Modano-Cleary

That would be a sick lineup.
