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.

I might be wrong but Holland said that he would like to get 6th D...


He also said he wants Ericsson and Kindl ice time. He might go for a 7th d-man. Maybe Janik fits the bill.

Mike Modano in the Winged Wheel sounds pretty good right about now.

Seems more than possible...

Depending on what we give Modano, I might be okay with it. Play on the third line, give us some secondary scoring which we surely lacked last year.

Janik isn't signed though... so there will be some sort of Defenseman signing...

Modano to play the role of Meech.



Sorry... what's his role???

I wouldn't mind Modano for ONE year @ 900K or so. Just throw Ritola through waivers, and we'd carry 14 forwards.

Hudler-Modano-Cleary
Abdelkader-Helm-Eaves
Miller, Draper

I think Abdelkader could drop the gloves more often.


What are the odds of moving Helm out to a wing, keeping Modano and Fil at center on back two lines? It seems plausible.

He also said he's not ready to give # 6 to Kindl - he needs to earn it...

Sign Modano for around $1m, trade Miller and Meech for some picks than use what we have left for our 6th defenseman which im sure Janik could fill the role of just fine if he had to. Sorry I cant help it, he is one of my favorite players.

We all know he'll end up in Phoenix or Atlanta or something.


I just think its BS that Paul Kariya doesn't even get mentioned and Dominicf****** Moore makes "TSN's top 10 list of UFAs". What the hell is going on here?

With Tatar and Mursak knocking on the door, I wouldn't want to see Modano signed for more than one year. From the above roster, I'd drop Miller for Boll (if it could happen).

Getting a No. 6 or 7 defenseman would appear to be a higher priority than signing a forward. They have two strong pairings -- Nicklas Lidstrom-Brian Rafalski and Brad Stuart-Niklas Kronwall -- and would like a safe veteran to play alongside young Jonathan Ericsson.

Rookie Jakub Kindl is assured of a roster spot because he is out of minor-league options, but the team isn't going to hand him a spot in the lineup unless he earns it.

"If there's a defenseman between now and September available at a price that fits in, we'll look at doing something," Holland said. "If we don't do anything on defense, we're OK, though not as deep as we'd like to be."

I'm sorry, but yes. He has already been contacted by the Wings.


I'm not disputing that; my point, which probably wasn't clear enough, was that I think it's a bad idea.

Im with you on that one. The only jerseys I have are an Yzerman and a McCarty. A Modono would look pretty nice next to those.
