Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

In past All-Star games where #9 was taken, he has worn #27 (7+2=9) I could also see him taking Abdelkadder's 8.

27 is most likely. It will be strange to see... Modano should always be 9! Just like Howe could never be anything but 9 or Yzerman 19!

I agree.

Madonna is acting like Brett Favre over here. Just make up your freaking mind already, since the decision also affects the team and not just yourself.

Me thinks Willa Ford isn't keen on moving to Detroit after all. Kind of like Pronger's wife in Edmontoon.

I'd threaten to never listen to any of her music in protest, but I already think my own common sense prevents it.

I love how people are bitching at Modano and don't want him to come because he's thinking about not coming. How petty and ridiculous. This is probably the hardest decision he's had to make in a long time. He's been with one organization for over 20 years and is thinking about doing something he's never done in joining a new team. You're like a bunch of 5 years old who don't get the most expensive present they want at their birthday party.

What a horrible person for thinking it through and wanting to make the right decision. /s

The difference might come down to which team he will have the biggest role with. I doubt San Jose would put Mike on their 2nd line (and they don't even have a goaltender). But I could see the Wild making Modano their 2nd line center. And who knows, maybe that's enough to sway him. I'm just hoping that he'll finish his career at home with his family. Also, if the injury bug hits, he could get some time on our 2nd line. Let's just hope 3rd line center and being back home is good enough for him.

Yeah, you read my joke on like page 3 or something. You actually believe that stuff?

Hell, if Roenick didn't sign with us when he was 40 and Cup hunting, why would Modano, who's already won a Cup?

I don't know that Detroit is a fashion Mecca, but maybe she'll just use the wardrobe her mama gave her.

I don't see Modono going to the Wild because they are not really contenders right now... Why would he waste a year with a team who didn't even make the playoffs last year. If he is going to come back for a year then it will be to a team that has a legit chance of winning the cup. That narrows it down to either Detroit and San Jose. San Jose would be an interesting choice for him considering he would be in the same division as the Stars. In Detroit, he would be playing with some great players on a very deep team in his home state. I hope he comes back for one more season and joins the wings. But he needs to make a decision soon so the wings can make the signings and moves necessary for their team.

That makes it sound like we have a Brett Favre situation here.

The only thing I hate about Mike Modano is he dives way too much. He also complains about proper calls all the time, it gets really annoying after awhile. He has a "crybaby" reputation and he has deserved it, with that said he is still a very talented player.

It's sort of a trade off with this guy. If you're willing to put up with his downside then you will surely enjoy his upside.

Bottom line is Detroit gives Modano the best chance to go out on top with a Cup. The sharks are a good team and all, but they lost basically their MVP in Nabokov. Nabby had the best season of his career last year for the Sharks. With no Nabby, Sharks are definitely not nearly as good. And they couldn't even get to the finals WITH Nabokov. Whereas here in Detroit, we have a goalie in Jimmy Howard who was top 5 in GAA and top 5 in save %, and is now a year older and more experienced. With our overall lineup, Mike has a great chance to win a Cup this season. So I definitely expect him to choose Detroit over the others. Especially since Minnie is a bottom feeder.

I've always thought of Modano as a quiet guy,like Stevie in the sense that he doesn't say a whole lot and let's his skills do the talking...

Not really, he's actually got quite a temper and he whines a lot!

He's still a great player, but he has some annoying habits we need to get use to.

This too: "Modano is keeping a close eye on teams like the Los Angeles Kings and possibly even the Phoenix Coyotes to see what moves they might make to create an opening"

hockeybuzz.com. I know, Eklund!

Well, this is just getting dumb if it's true. The novelty factor has wore off. I really wouldn't care if he went somewhere else. At least then I can get back to not liking him.
