It was a tough break with the wrist injury, but it looks like a bust signing so far. Obviously there's no need to make a decision right now, but judging by his body of work so far I can't imagine he'd be re-signed.

No offense, but this thread pisses me off. Let's finish with the season and the playoffs and then discuss. His real worth will be determined in the playoffs where his playoff experience and leadership might make the real difference.

Right now the Wings overall poor effort against the pens is enough for us to talk about! lol

Modano is the only one shooting the puck tonight besides Zett.

I'm not going to sit here and say I haven't seen him float around the ice wandering around but come on guys. Why did we sign Modano in the first place? For veteran leadership and experience in the PLAYOFFS. Why can't we get things like the playoffs and regular season are two different storms fellas? How many times does this need to be said? Let's ask this question AFTER the playoffs are done... please...

I hope he does, I mean let him end on his terms. And he is the only one working tonight besides Hank. Not to mention he got screwed out of most of the year.

No.

We need a big, young, gritty forward who will play hard and hungry all the time.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

He's depth. Frankly, if he can live with fourth line minutes and a view from the press box from time to time, I'd give him another year on the cheap. But no, Mikey Mo no more PP time. Sorry.

He's playing well tonight though.

I just love it how because we 'signed him for the playoffs' it means he can float all regular season, suck it up, but that's all okay because that's not why we signed him. What a cop out! And how is a washed up 40 year old suddenly going to flick the switch? Incredible.

At this point, other than bringing Willa Ford to team parties, what else does he bring that is so invaluable to the team?

And don't say experience, because we have enough of that. We need to get younger.

We'll see how he performs in the playoffs.

I'm not judging him on anything else.

I think he's been one of the better players out there the last two games. He showed some good grit tonight even, using his body. It's hard to say because of his injury we haven't got a good sample of what he can do, so I'll agree with seeing how he does in the playoffs to make judgment.

Shouldn't be hard to find or expensive.

Just depends on who's out there.

I'd say that two of Modano, Eaves, Miller, and Draper are staying. At this point, I'm not sure who the two will be (although one (or both) of Miller and Eaves is likely).

I love Mo, and he's played decently, but nah we gotta get younger and grittier.
