According to the Detroit Free Press Mike Modano WILL be signing with the wings! This gives us unparalleled depth for our first three lines and I just can't wait to see him score in red and white on Turco in a Blackhawks uniform!

Damnit. You beat me to it!

Anyways, I'm super pumped about this signing. The Wings now have the deepest group of forwards in the NHL.

Hudler-Modano-Cleary = 3rd line money!!!

Welcome Home Mike!!!

Haha it's all in good fun! I normally don't post on the boards but then this popped up and I noticed nobody had bothered to post anything so I had to jump all over it. This is exciting though, Modano in a winged wheel just feels right to me! GO WINGS!

No, but it's pretty promising.

Small price to pay for a ridiculous third line imo.

I was thinking the same thing. This is still speculation.

There is plenty of hinting in the article that would lead us to believe that he is signing with the Wings. But I'm with you; I won't believe it until he makes an official announcement.

I have always wanted to see this guy in a Wings uniform and I'm hoping this rumor is true. Modanno centering Cleary and Hudler seems like it could be sick.

modano should work, in the possibility he doesn't it will be a disaster, but at that price and the fact that he still has gas in the tank i think he will work, not my first choice but a safe one imo.

“Big announcement Thursday,” Modano sent in a text Monday.


Modano: "Everyone, we're here today so that I can announce that my wife has yet another name. She will now be known as Willa Mandy Ford-Modano. Also, I am not Jon Heder. Thank-you."

Welcome back to Mo-Town Mike!
But my most coveted thing is a high self-esteem
And a low tolerance for them telling me how to lean
See the most important parts are the ones that are unseen
The Wings don't make you fly and the Crown don't make you king
Now God don't like ugly, ain't too happy bout pretty
I am ignorance's enemy so stay out of the vicinity of...
