I can't wrap my head around the concept of him on this team. Hang 'em up, Mike. Sorry, but it's past your time to go.

Agreed Kira.

Ken Holland: Hes (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, hes a puck hound.

I think you're just going a little too drastic with it - I actually would prefer we stay away from him as well(not wanting to give up on Ritola yet without giving him a shot as my main reason)... but I wouldn't hate the signing and can see it's upside as well...

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

His presence is not necessary on our team.

Get Afinogenov over here.

He would NEVER work here - he was run out of Buffalo for a poor work ethic and takes nights off at a pace that rivals only Alexi Yashin - Babcock would have him in the press box by game 10...

I would take Modano at age 50 over Afinogenov any time. He's fast (when he's not being lazy) and has a decent shot, but never scored more than 24 goals in a season and doesn't play defense. No thanks.

Umm... how is it a kick in the face to Dallas? THEY were the ones who said they didn't want him back. It was a kick in the face to Modano.

No excitement? Are you kidding?
They announced they wouldn't be keeping Lebda!
They failed to bid for Lang, Kariya, Kovy, AND Schneider.
They didn't trade for Crosby, Malkin, Ovechkin, Iginla, OR anyone surnamed Staal.
They didn't attempt to lure Forsberg, Sundin, Scott Neidermeyer (pending) or Cloutier out of retirement.

No excitement? What? All of those things we were banking on happening, and they didn't do it? Be still my thundering heart! I can't keep up with the shocking post-season antics around here.

Also, Mike claimed that he had the impression that he was free to play as long as he wanted.

The price would have to be right ofcourse, but why not take a risk on a guy who put up 60+ points last year? I'm very familiar with his problems in work ethic, but perhaps the Wings organization can snap him out of it. And Crymson, try to actually contribute with your posts once in a while instead of just trolling the site and berating everyone else.

Can the people who don't want Modano clarify a little bit? Is it because you want to be sure Ritola has a shot on this team? Is it possible to still retain him if Mike is signed? I mean, injuries are still going to happen no mater what so somebody will have to come in eventually.

And please don't give me any of this loyalty to Dallas crap. They spit on him when they took his C away and told him his time there was done. Can you imagine this team doing either of those things to Yzerman or Lidstrom? If he wants to end his career in his home state, and bring in hard work and motivation to the team (a la Dallas Drake) then I see no downside to this.
