I'm glad that Babcock said Modano probably won't make his decision until August 1st at the earliest. Hopefully that will at least temper the, "Did he sign? Did he sign? Why won't he sign? What an *******!" comments a little bit.

s***,that's another two weeks. Unlike Brett Favre, we don't really need Modano for anything.

He's just a third liner and should have no power to strong arm the team into waiting. They should start looking at other players to possibly sign and not treat him any differently than anyone else. First come first serve.

He's not our captain or anything.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Not that I disagree with your sentiment, but Modano means a little bit more to American hockey than "just a third liner" and "not our captain". Just sayin'...

Modano isn't strong arming the Wings. What a weird thing to say. Neither side is in a hurry.

The eternal optimist in me thinks that maybe Modano is "training like crazy" or in some way is trying a small test on himself to see if he wants to go through it for 82+ games.

Dude....they aren't going to sign anyone for another two or three weeks anyway. You're obviously underestimating how valuable he'd be for us on the third line.

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

It's true. A line of Hudler-Cleary-Modano could be phenomenal.

Do we need Modano? No.

Would he make what we have better? Yes.

I can't believe so many people want him to sign. I guess his name goes a long way eh?

amen to that. As said before; do we NEED him? No. Would he make a phenomenal asset to the team; Yes. We would have one of the; if not THE strongest third line in the NHL.

I think Modano would be this year's equivalent of THE DRAKE.

Because he love the kids and youth from GR and watch alot of their games, maybe he gets a bit blind because of this.

Love it when Babcock speaks frankly.

Why has there been so much talk about trading miller? I understand the talk of trading meech, but miller actually brings something to the team. I didnt even hear his name in thoughts about trades/waiving till yesterday. Where did they come from? Was there something written about possibly trading/waiving him? Or is that just LGW'ers speculating? I like Miller, and dont want to see him go. He complements the Red Wings playing style, along with Eaves, and brings alot to the team for a good 4th liner. Plus his contract is lite, which i know is what makes him movable, but i think it would suck to get rid of him.

Also, i dont understand how some people still dont see Modano as a good addition for the wings if he ever decides to sign. The guy isnt exactly what we need, as everyone knows we would like to have a good Dmen added who is gritty and can hit/stick up for the team. But dont people get that Modano makes the wings a dangerous team containing 3 full lines that can score AND play defensively sound? I figured after watching the team struggle to score so much last year (because of injuries and bad luck) people would understand that having scoring threats on the top 3 lines is a good thing. you can never have to much scoring. Dont get me wrong, i too would like to stregthen the D-line as it looked pretty shaky last year, but Modano makes the team better regardless, and is definetly a great addition.

Modano scored 16 goals in 59 games last year which projected over 82 games is equivalent to 22 goals. We would be adding a 20 goals scorer with strong veteran presence and leadership. As a result, we will lose either Ritola or Miller most likely. Which do you think gives us a better chance for the Cup?
Do or do not. There is no try
