RUMOR: Wings sign Modano

Robocop 4?

Darren Arinofsky (Requiem for a Dream, Pi, The Fountain) was actually supposed to shoot a reboot of the Robocop franchise within the past year or so. Too bad he didn't, and none of the Robocop movies were shot in Detroit. The new Scream movie is being shot in Grand Rapids, maybe Willa can commute.

Either way, sucks that this is all hearsay.

Even tho it's a rumor, I would love it to be a 2 year deal. Lower cap hit and a good center 3rd/4th line player for 2 years.

A 1 year contract for a player over 35 allows the Wings to go over cap. A 2 year does not.

The first Robocop movie was, in part shot here in Detroit. At COBO hall actually, the OCP building was in fact COBO.

Well I stand corrected, then. I was under the impression that the 1st movie was shot entirely in Dallas.

You give him 2mill the first year and .750 the second, Modano retires after the first year making 2 mill yet his cap hit was only 1.375, it's a win/win.

yea, minus that whole eating 1.375 of cap space for a player that isn't on the team - if he signs a 2 year, he better fulfill it...

At least parts of Scream 4 are being shot in the Ann Arbor area as well.

But with Lidstrom retiring, along with Draper and who knows who else, a lot of cap space is going to be freed up next summer and it's likely his 900k cap hit after retirement won't hurt the team any. This is probably Holland's reasoning (again, if the 2 year part is true). So really it's a smart move, a cheap 2 year contract even if Modano retires after the next season.

Exactly. :thumbup:

Retired salaries do not count against the cap.

Retired salaries do not count against the cap.

They do if the player is over 35 at the time the deal is signed.

Please retire! This would be horrible for the young guys on this team. Absolutely makes no sense whatsoever. 1 yr would be awful, 2 yrs? rediculous. Someone tell Holland that Helm, Abdelkader, Ritola, Eaves, Miller all could play on this team for the next deacade. We don't need Modano, he's finished.

There are a ton of movies being shot in Detroit and Ann Arbor currently.

Robocop 4?

I've been in a few. Red dawn (2010) filmed last fall, recently in Harold and Kumar 3 (Christmas H&K) and The Double. They also have had a bunch more, a popular one being Real Steel. Parts of Transformers 3 is also being shot in Metro Detroit. So with her coming here she could definitley get some work without a doubt.

As far as the Modano signing don't toy with peoples emotions! He hasn't signed anything yet and I can't wait to log on and see the headlines something along this "Modano bound for HockeyTown, or #9 is headed home"!!!! Com'on Kenny and Mikey, get er' done! :thumbup:

With the signing of Miller, Eaves would be the one to go.

You know how like, when you ask a girl out and she says, "let me think about it"... then a couple days pass by and you're sitting there feeling kind of stupid. And then a little later you start to feel like, "who do you think you are, just give me an answer!?"... Yeah.
