Alright so the Stars fans that I work with (I am in Dallas) just told me that they heard on a Dallas sports radio station that Mike is going to be throwing out the first pitch at the Tigers game tonight, in a Wings sweater. Anyone heard anything about this being a done deal????



Per Live 105.3 Dallas radio.....Mike Modano IS throwing out the first pitch, and is reportedly VERY CLOSE TO SIGNING WITH THE WINGS....possibly even done already just finalizing the finer details. The Dallas fans are all saying that he should retire instead of signing with the Wings. "He should be a man and retire a Star, not sign with Detroit. Cuz lets be honest, no one down here likes the Wings."(radio host)



lol

love the fact that we are the envy of so many.

I don't think Modano is seriously considering the other teams that have shown interest because the only team he's talked about is Detroit. At least that's the way I see it from all the interviews that have come out in the past week. No other teams were mentioned until today and it wasn't from him.

As much as I want Filppula to have consistent minutes on the PP I have to admit that PP lines of

Z-Pav-Homer
Huds-Modano-Mule

can help the Wings get back the best PP in the league again.

Yeah that's right. I anticipate that the Wings will find a way to get a right handed shot though somehow because that's just what they do, for better or for worse.

They both can be. Modano is good on the point as well.

Yes. I even think Clears out there on occasion too to attack the net. But these definitely should be the night in night out PP units.

Everyone probably wish it's draper but you know how detroit red wings' works and their management, the loyalty factor :( 1.5M for an extra forward is too much to look away from...

draper won't be going anywhere, he will just be a healthy scratch.

I think Maltby would be the only potential signing that would be the death-knell for any Modano chatter.

Don't worry about the lines right now. Eaves, Miller, Abdelkader, Draper and Ritola will be battling for spots at camp this year. Someone is going to be waived/traded no matter what happens.

Abdelkader has only played 2 seasons in GR so he still has AHL eligibility left as well (and certainly wouldn't be hurt by spending more time developing his offensive game given that he clearly isn't ready to consistently score at the NHL level yet).
