Dallas Morning News got it right. This is a good article, by someone in Dallas that isn't a complete tool.

This is indeed a thoughtful, positive column. Thanks for putting it on here, Miller. :thumbup:

am i the only one who thinks we should have gotten a damn good d-man for a few years than sign modano for one? i think kenny is experimenting with something...

Expound on this...like who at what $ for how long? Enquiring minds want to know. I'm fine with Holland's moves, but your's may be better...what's your idea?

Looks good.

He wore 27 when 9 was taken in All Star games. I bet he wears 27.

Well, I didn't want it to happen, it'll mean the end of a promising prospect, but whatever.

Ritola is not as promising in my mind. I just don't see his role on our team in the short run. Maybe we resign him down the road. Who knows, but I am not going to miss someone when I feel like Modano gives us a chance at overcoming the very real problem of not being the NHL's team of choice to win it all.

I like 90...but I think he would have looked sweeter in 27. kind of like how Hossa looked so much more bad ass wearing 81 than he did 18

Well.......here's hoping he's what the team needs and he proves himself to be a help, not a hindrance. I trust that Kenny & Co. know what they're doing, so if they're on board, I'm on board.

Good luck to you, sir. You'll need it.

why not number 6?????? no one else has ever worn it either that i can think of. Its just an upside down 9

discussed earlier in the thread, it may not be retired officially but it is like 16, Modano

Surprisingly good. I gotta say it's going to be really weird seeing him in Detroit. Weird but good.

I have always creamed in my shorts thinking about having Modano on the Wings. A few years later than I would have liked so the mess will be easier to clean! Very excited.

I think he could be somewhat like Brett Hull was as a mentor to Zett and Datts on the old goat and two kids line if he is ever paired with say Abbs/Healm or another youth- maybe even Hudler and Healm.

So when he's done as a player, he comes to Detroit who welcome him wiht both arms. We fell in love with the idea of the past Modano, not the washed up one of 2010.

He's still one of the better depth players in this year's free agency...and kenny adds him to this club.. be happy.

i think there will be a one hour special, where Modano will say "I will take my talents to the motor city"

Nah because ESPN doesn't know who Mike Modano is, or hockey in general it seems.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this or not. I know there was curiosity about what number he would use. ESPN lists him on the roster and as having #90.

a washed up modano will generate more pts on the 3rd line than darren helm would this year. that's all that matters.

I love it when "fans" talk s*** about a player and say hes old and washed up but then when that same player is our leading scorer, they don't have s*** to say. Why don't you haters have paitence and see what happens. Hockey players play different in other jerserys. who knows, maybe he will deke like Datsyuk, have the temper of Bert and hit like Kronwall. I doubt that combo, but its possible! oh wait, isn't that franzen? :blink:
