Oh and LOL to who suggested Afinogenov would work here but Modano wouldn't.

What are you smoking bro?

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.

The problem is, that if you want to add any toughness at all in a gritty 4th liner, you have to trade Ritola as well and will already have to deal Miller if Modano is signed, as there will simply not be enough roster spots...

EDIT - just explaining by the way - I can see the positives and negatives to both sides.

Agreed.There's simply too many roster spots.I think we need some snarl rather than Modano,not downgrading Mike but he simply isn't what we need right now,in my opinion.

What's with the "it's detroit or retirement"

Now Sharks and Wild are in the mix

http://blog.mlive.co...ano_now_co.html

"It would be a fun storyline," Modano said, referring to the fact that he was drafted by the Minnesota North Stars in 1988 and moved with the franchise to Dallas. He played his final game of 2010 in Minnesota, donning an old North Stars jersey as he waved goodbye. "It's the same scenario. I'm listening to what everyone has to say and taking it all in. I still have to decide if I'm going to play."

I always had the thought of him going back to Minnesota in the back of my mind.The Wild don't have many spots left for a forward:

Guillaume Latendresse
Martin Havlat
Antti Miettinen
James Sheppard
Andrew Brunette
Mikko Koivu
Chuck Kobasew
Kyle Brodziak
Cal Clutterbuck
Brad Staubitz
Warren Peters
Eric Nystrom

Not sure what Pierre Marc Bouchard's deal is with his concussion,but it doesn't appear that Minnesota would have space for Modano.

Blah blah Minnesota. He just went and saw an awesome game at Comerica with the first place Tigers. Nobody wants to go see the 3rd place Twins and have to play that style of hockey and wear those horrific uni's.

modano wants to be on a contender if he hangs around. that automatically eliminates minnesota. and the sharts? they're probably up against the cap too. i guess he could go there and spend the entire playoffs on the power play.

Doesn't his wife want to stay close to the west coast? We need to consider the possibility that Mikey is completely whipped. :ph34r:

I doubt the sharks have the space, if they get Hjalmarsson.

i wouldn't mind him here, but him taking his time signing..first it was only us, now possibly he is interested in other teams.... if he wants to play for us sign by monday, if not then G.T.F.O. The team doesn't need this drama , the fact is we got a great team either with or without Mike for next season, so s*** or get off the pot mikey.

Someone pro-Modano went on a minus spree on page 24. Some people need to grow up an realise you don't just minus posts you don't agree with. The whole plus/minus thing isn't for people's opinions, it's how they're put across.

(waits for this post to be minsued to prove my point)

is it that important to you that your post doesn't get a - number? do we win something for having the highest + post or something. i don't get it.

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.


oh i wasnt aware that they said that. thought he was just up for grabs

+/- increases the size of my Epenis.

I just don't like to see people (not just me) having their posts with that red box despite the fact there's nothing wrong with what they've written.

Your posts are being minus'd because by not wanting to sign Modano you basically admit you don't realize how important depth is because Modano would be an incredible depth signing. Without Modano our bottom 6 is average, with Modano it's one of the best in the league. Combine that with one of the better top sixes in the league and you're looking at making a really deep run in the playoffs. Like I said before, we won in 08 because of our depth. We were out in the second round this year because we had none.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!
