I hope that Modano is similar to Drake in the fact he will be a veteran who can add a spark to the team when needed, especially if some players miss some games during the regular season.

maybe he'll even throw down once in a while like Dally did? :P

Why do we need a Dallas Drake every year now?


because drake was the greatest thing to ever happen to the red wings and they wouldn't have been able to live with themselves if they had not won the cup just for him

I see Modano more like a Larionov; guy who's past his prime - yet is still capable of being a productive member on the right team.

Him and Drake are different kind of players.

Also, the team wanted to help Drake win his first Cup. Modano already has a Cup, so it's not quite the same thing.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

yea I'd agree with this. Mo can be very good still, he show flashes of the player he was 10 years ago sometimes so I know the talent is still there unfortunately in Dallas with the team we had it was conducive for him to float a little more than he should. That being said I think he is a great fit for the Wings. I very much wish he was still back here and since it isn't looking promising for Dallas I hope he is the missing piece for the Wings. I will support Mo to the end, he deserves that and if that means cheering for the Wings I'll do what needs to be done. I am dreading opening night at the AAC in Dallas, it will be very bittersweet seeing my favorite player suiting up for another team.

You mean because of the whole "Dallas" thing? Hmm, something to think about.

It's as funny as "they wanted to win the Cup for Drake" myth.

Yup, I'm thinking that they just really wanted to win the Cup to begin with.

What games were you watching?

The NHL has played quite a few games since March 8, 2004. Just a few though.

Yeah and Konstantinov wasn't a motivation in 98 either, they just wanted to win the cup to begin with :rolleyes:

A 39 year old throwing his body on the line and doing anything to win his first cup would be a pretty big motivation I'm sure, do you think before you type?

Correct me if i'm missing something, but i haven't seem Modano even attempt to finish a check yet.. Mike Modano and Dallas Drake are nothing alike.

You seriously are comparing the Konstintinov in 98 to Drake in 08? Seriously?

I think a crippled-for-life long-time teammate and a new-to-the-team aging grinder are two entirely different things. I honestly can't believe you even made this comparison.
