I'm not really liking the meeting with Minnesota part. What happened to Detroit or retirement?

Im sure Modano would love to finish his career with the city that drafted him, but its not to often a player gets to play in his hometown.

I just can't imagine Modano not singing here. 1.25m can't be much less than what he's being offered elsewhere, plus, and of course I'm not in his position, but he must have grown up being a Wings fan and it seems like such a great end to his career to finish off in Detroit. I really think it's still Detroit or retire.

i thought they offered him 800K ?


That was always only speculation.

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

I thought I read somewhere earlier that Minnesota said its unlikely they'd have room for him, but they would meet anyways to discuss possible options. So I think Detroit gives him the best chance to still prove himself, but I have a feeling he might just want to go back to the team where it all began, and end his career there because he couldn't in Dallas.

What about a 46yr old Chelios for our cheap veteran stay at home defensman? Look I am under no delusions that he would be a fixture on the blue line but he could help bring along the kids and play here or there. I am saying if we sign Modano and the other cheaper options don't look all that attractive???

P.S. I too think 1.25 is fair, he won't get much more from Minnesota or San Jose, only the Ducks can afford to over pay for him if they so desire.

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

Seeing Modano in a Ducks uniform would be plain strange.

Given that nothing else is happening this Modano thing is way more annoying than it should be.

Just a rumor and consider the source (not reliable), but I thought I would throw it in for comment.

"According to Andy Strickland of HockeyBuzz, a source close to Mike Modano says he has narrowed his choices for next year to San Jose, Chicago and Minnesota. " From his blog.

SJ and Detroit are the only teams that make sense. Chicago can't afford anyone right now, Minnesota has no shot at a Cup. I think this move (if he does move on and doesn't retire) is about fun and a shot at the Cup. He's not going to get big money anywhere at 40 years old. So its either SJ, so he can be closer to his wife and play against the Stars 6 times or Detroit where he grew up.
