I came across a Red Wings store online that had Modano jerseys available already. They were already sold out of sizes L and XL. I don't know if I could justify buying a Modano jersey, unless they win the cup. What about you?

Yes, I would. Mo has always been one of my favs, but now that he is a wing I almost have to buy his jersey. Its not like I would want to buy a Kariya jersey, or wanted a Hull or Robitaille back in the day. I just have always had a soft spot for Mo.

No. My Yzerman jersey suits me just fine.

Nah a one year stint means nothing to me. I reserve jerseys for long term players.

I refuse to buy player jerseys unless they're already retired and had long careers as Wings.

Imagine how people who bought Marian Hossa jerseys feel.

There is not a word in the English language to describe all the levels of no in response to this question.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

I would still buy a Detroit Hossa jersey and I considered buying a Bertuzzi jersey after he left, but since he's back now I have more time to save my pennies. Just because they play/ed for different teams doesn't mean I don't appreciate their game anymore.

I like jerseys of players that didn't play for a team for a long time. Like a Lindros Leafs or Stars jersey. Or a Hatcher Wings jersey. I think they're pretty cool. I wouldn't mind a Modano Wings jersey and if he plays just this one year and they win the Cup, that jersey will always remind me of that Stanley Cup.

I'd buy a Modano Wings jersey in a heartbeat, if I lived in Dallas.

I won't until I can successfully order my Yan Golubovsky jersey first.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I plan on it. Yes it's possible that he is only here for one year, but my favorite player of all time (besides Stevie) on my favorite team of all time. I don't care... I'll always remember him being on the Wings for at least one season, and that's all that matters to me. :D

I could see getting his jersey if you liked if you liked him before he came here. I could also see buying it if you had a lot of cash to throw around and liked to have lots of jerseys. I could also see it if you were a friend/relative of his. It would also be a way to strike up a conversation with his woman if you thought she was attractive but didn't think you had a chance to converse with her otherwise.

Personally, I'm a "none of the above".

Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)
