another thing, I hope modano makes up his mind soon so kenny doesn't just sit around on his ass waiting for modano while all the FA that could help the wings are signed away until there is nothing left but garbage

in kenny i trust but he is really starting to irritate me with this loyalty/loosing youth for 40 year olds bulls***

Yzerman was never pushed out the door by anyone, and never would have been. Dallas doesn't understand traditions and the importance of a "face" to the franchise

And who exactly do they have that's going to be the recipient of that freed up roster spot anyways? Krys Barch? Toby Petersen? Brian Sutherby? Gimme a break. It doesn't really seem like letting him go makes sense from a hockey standpoint or a financial one for the Stars.
"We've been in the same spot all year long. We won 50 games for the fourth year in a row. People think we're just hum-drum and boring.
No, you know what we are, we're good. You can't do what we do every single day and not be good." - Mike Babcock

thats right the wings are such a classy org. they would let yzerman play as long as he wanted.

Is it normal for players to talk about an organization interest in you the way Modano does? Seems like all the "not a bad place to be" or "they're selling it pretty hard" is just a way to market himself to other teams. "If Detroit is interested in him then maybe we should consider him."

here is the part of the article I dislike:

"but it's just stunning to imagine the Wings cutting ties with one of their RFA's or giving up on Ritola outright to bring Modano into the fold.

Update: I'm going to say this and see where it goes: if the Wings have to decide to let Drew Miller and Ritola go to sign Modano, here's a question--does Ken Holland try to get Modano to bite on a multi-year contract?"

the bolded part is the part of the article I dislike very much. If kenny does this I will definitely have to question this move. Of course nothing has happened....yet...


Read closer there, that's the bloggers idea, nothing more. Holland will not offer a multi-year contract, plain and simple. He's wise enough to know that we have cap coming off the books next season and we have youngsters like Tatar climbing up the ranks.

This is exactly the way I read his comments. It almost feels like he's posturing here, seeing if he can get a better deal somewhere else with better minutes, but maybe it's more showing Dallas that someone still wants him. He could just be bitter too, who knows.

Also, I doubt his jersey number is a huge issue. He could end up wearing #10 or #18... or something. My only true gripe with Modano is that he looks like Jon Heder.

Modano is too old! We need to get tougher on the 3rd and 4th lines not older. Unless Modano comes for real cheap...like so cheap that you couldn't turn it down but I doubt that would happen. I would pass on this!

I agree with the to old argument. I actually think if it came down to it, Nystrom for the same price as Modano would be better then getting modano. The steps Nystrom has been aking offensively, the toughness and the age factor makes me really rather have Nystrom on our third line then Modano

I don't think we'd fit him under the cap, but I always liked him and would love to see him play a season with Wings.

a bonus like Willa Ford is sure fine with me :w00t2:

Hopefully it falls through.

Seriously. I've been a big Modano fan over the years, but if signing Mike is Holland's one big move, I'm going to be pissed. The Wings badly need a bottom pairing guy, ideally someone big and physical who will clear the crease.

Sure Modano could be a decent addition to this team, but it shouldn't come at the cost of a defenseman and/or grinding forward (who hopefully can fight).
