This hurts our chances at landing a big grinding forward and a physical defenseman.

When healthy, scoring is the last of our concerns, so I'm not so sure if he gives us anything we don't already have.

Doesn't exactly make us a younger team either.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Booya!

He'd immediately make the 2nd PP more dangerous and the 3rd line a legit scoring threat.

I hate that it will take some playing time from the younger kids but if you can make the team better with a signing without hurting the long-term viability of the team you do it.


Right now I think most of the forward talent is in need of more time at the AHL level anyway. The only ones who could use it would be Ritola and Abdelkader. Adding Modano in, Abs should see some time on the LW of Helm-Eaves, which to me is a very promising and energetic 4th line.

By 2nd PP I assume you figure he'll be on the blue line? I wonder how that'd work out.

So does this mean Zetterberg will no longer be the ladies man on the team?

He's not coming here. I keep reading and hearing he is very flattered by the Wings interest in him. But it sounds like he wants to be closer to his hot wife in California. The Ducks are looking for an affordable center. My guess, he ends up there.

Filppula will be happy because this move cements his place on the 2nd line. Now we won't be forced to play Val on the 3rd to make sure that line is a legit scoring line (as I just don't think Helm or Abdelkader are ready to be scoring centres yet).


This is also one of the reasons I want Modano so much. :P

And I agree with you about Helm and Abds. Our line up looks much better with Modano centering the third line.

The wings are the only team interested in Modano. It's either the wings or retire.

If he does sign, what number will he wear? Nine and nineteen are unavailable and seeing someone other than Fedorov wearing 91 on the winged-wheel would be really wierd.

And he can't wear the number of his age, because Zetterberg is already wearing that number.

He's a lefty but I definitely think he'll either be on the point with Kronwall or sharing centre duties with Filppula (who is definitely capable of playing on the wing). I'd prefer seeing Ericsson get PP time with Kronwall so he can start using his 100mph shot more often. He slow to get the shot off so his best case scenario is on the PP where he's got a bit more time and space to work.

Well this certainly is interesting. I heard on 97.1 earlier this evening that. He seemed flattered but was either mulling retirement if he can't find a West Coast team to play for. But those are very interesting comments(in the article above) coming directly from Modano. It would be amazing if Holland can make this happen.

I mean if it happens, and he is around a mil, it wont hurt us. Then we would need to focus on getting a tough 6th dman

If he ends up signing here, I hope its not much more than 1 million and definitly only 1 year.

It wouldn't be more than a year. He's mulling retirement as it is.
