No, these are just people getting excited because Babs said he "thinks" Modano will sign.

"Expects" ;)

Got to get excited about something Johnny Raincloud. :hehe:

Babcock's comment about getting 100 points was great.

Not at all crazy about two years for Modano, but if it helps achieve a championship 11 months from now then it's all good.

From reading Babcock's comments, it looks like he is saying that he thinks if Modano comes here for a year, he will renew for a second, not that the Wings are looking to sign him to a 2-year contract. At least that's how I read it, and I hope so because signing any player over 35 to a multi-year deal is risky, and once you hit 40 there should be a law against signing a multi-year deal.

I hope Modano does come here, he instantly gives us one of the most dangerous 3rd scoring lines, though I would probably put Hudler on the 2nd with Franzen & Filppula and Bertuzzi with Modano and Cleary, but either way no one else can touch that kind of offensive depth, and having Abdelkader/Helm/Eaves as a 4th line is nothing to scoff at either, 3 wrecking balls who can all put up 10 goals and shut down defensively.

Now all we need is a 6th defenseman and we're all set, and with each day that passes guys like Sutton depreciate in value, so we may just get lucky and snag someone on the cheap that fills the stay-at-home shot-blocking fighter role that we so desperately need.

:lol: Ouch!

Keep that up and I'll be using my mod powers against you! I could come up with a "nice" new signature for you! :P
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Love this description of the three of them. And I still hope it's true about Modano. But I'm one of those nervous nellies who thinks Babcock's statement just might jinx the deal, if Mikey's ego gets in his way too much.

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

What kind of stories have you heard about Modano being a ****** and egotistical?

i just have a hard time believing if holland really did say this that it would be just hot air. you know how they have been with other players. you know nothing until stuff happens. and if he is laying it out like that already than i feel its pretty much a done deal.

Actually, none whatsoever. In fact I was amazed when Whoever put posts on here about what a ****** he was. We live three hours from Dallas and I pay some attention to whuz up there with the Stars, and I've heard nuthin'. But I wasn't looking for anything either.

As for the Ego Thing, I was just talking about pro athletes in general. Specifically, SEE: LeBron/Favre/T.O./Wah/Brodeur/Crosby/Neon Deon(sp?)/Artest/etc. :) But like I said, I've heard nothing even iffy about him.

I don't neccessariy think it's hot air...it's just that a done deal aint a done deal until the deal is done, and this deal aint done.

modano would sign 1 year 1.25, not 2 years if he did sign

I should know not to mess with the mods. :hehe: Could remove the many irrelevant posts I make on a regular basis at my boring job here. I definitely think Babs is just getting Mike set up to make some sort of move here. Still think it will be around August until we really make the signing official.
