Yeah, but he's got a sugar mama in Willa Ford. Maybe that's why she's wearing the pants at the moment.


She's a sugar mama? From what? No ways she's made that much money from playboy.

EDIT: Mandy Modano is a she not he.

So my guess that this was like a Brett Favre situation wasn't far off, then.


s*** or get off the pot, Mike.

<br />Since when have the Blackhawks been in the Modano hunt?<br />

<br /><br /><br />

Probably the moment they heard we were after him. The 'Hawks go after anyone we had or are trying to sign. Remember Sopel? lol.

Wouldn't be surprised if these other suitors are just helping him drive up his price tag. But I'm sure Kenny won't budge in front of that. He's already said that he's fine with the team as it is.

Remember in his press conference after his last game he said, "Well, I might get a little Favre-itis"

Haha, I was just teasing. She just seems to have a decent amount of control over where Modano goes... at least according to the reports.

I'd just like a decision, any decision, so we know where the Wings stand.

We need to sign an enforcer to put Willa Ford in check.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I originally wasn't opposed to Modano signing up to play one more year here but the longer this goes on, the less excited I am. Either sign or don't. Holland needs to tell him that he has until, like, Wednesday or else the team will start making decisions which will make it very hard for him to come to Detroit if and when he chooses.

So hate on but guess what, I feel like I can't miss,
I know they want me to fall, But ain't nothin' bigger than this, So just pass me the ball

I really don't know why so many here are being impatient... you just know its either going to be Modano or Maltby.

I guess I can understand why Modano might want to do this. I just don't see why the Ducks would.

What decisions are being held back by waiting for Modano? It's not like last summer when we had no idea what was going to happen with 3 million of our cap space while we waited for Hudler which let Sammy slip through the cracks. Kenny still needs to sign Helm and Abdelkader, a defense spot and one likely forward. This is only affecting the forward spot, which Kenny would otherwise probably wait another month to fill. It's not like it's been a month since we've talked to Modano, it's been one week. We'll probably hear something from this week if not today, have some patience.

I'm starting to think that Modano is just using the Wings so the team he wants to sign with becomes interested. Like say San Jose or Anaheim. I was all for Modano signing with the Wings and being the 3rd line centre but now I am hoping he goes somewhere else.

So your opinions are a function of time and whatever excitement generated, with no real objectivity at all?


I don't think Modano is some sort of god or anything (though I do think it's a great signing, and Holland agrees with me) and I won't kill myself if he doesn't sign, but some people here are just acting ridiculous...

After Helm and Abdelkader, the Wings do not "need" to sign any forwards. Counting Ritola, Hudler, and all returning forwards who are currently signed, the Wings have 12 forwards NOW. That means Helm and Abby push it to 14.

As far as defense, the Wings have five returning defensemen signed plus Kindl. Janik is also signed and Meech will be signed soon.

The longer this goes, the less likely it is Modano will be a Wing. As for the defense, unless the Wings can find a good physical, defensive type who can play well and is cheaper than Lilja was, the Wings will be going into the season with the current group.
