I agree with the above poster. He isn't playing another game for this team. Whether we keep going in this round or if it ends tonight, it's pretty clear he will be gone.

Wonder if he sees any time in Game 5.

No reason for Modano not to play in place of Hudler at this point, Hudler was invisible for 95% of the game last night, and when he was involved, he was making terrible defensive lapses (including the one that led to Boyle's goal).

I disagree. Hudler was making things happen. I get really nervous about putting in Modano, who said he doesn't have the fire for a playoff run, in crucial must-win games like this. The Sharks have such pressure that one lazy move or lost race to the puck could cost a game.

Hudler's efforts have contributed 0 points to this series, he's setup no goals for a grand total of 0 assists. Modano is a better skater, has more experience, and his shot and ability to the play the point could help wake up the Wings incredibly sad powerplay efforts.

When I think of "lost race" and "lazy," I'm looking right at Hudler, not Modano.

Hudes is lost among the giants and Mo is the Sharks killer. Maybe Babs is saving the best for last? We will need the wheels out there on Sunday!

It's a two-edged sword if you look at it from the con or "lazy" side. Would Modano's frustrations (which I certainly understand) of not getting back in cause him to throw in the towel early and not try as hard in a game? If the game in Phoenix serves as an indication, probably not, but I don't think that's an unrealistic question to ask.

With Hudler, we all know of his offensive capabilities but he hasn't done much as the series has went on, and was on the ice near Boyle on one of those backdoor defensemen goals but absolutely no clue that he was around, playing the puck and not the body.

I'd love to see Modano play, but I fully support whatever the coaching staff does. I rarely like getting into the bench so-and-so game or hold grudges against players or stuff like that.

Question?.......by putting in Mo, would we be throwing in the towel? He's bigger than Hudes and faster......... better stick skills........ still a force to reckon with......I'm being sentimemntal and don't want Mo's career to end without playing another game,besides Franzen doesn't look 100% imo. Let him rest... we will need him in the long run...... it's time to get into the Sharks heads, they know Mo's history against them!

Don't forget that Babcock sat Chelios during our playoff runs in 2008 and 2009, for Brett "freaking" Lebda.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I think the more he talks, the less likely it is for babs to play him.

Why not put Mike in? With each game possibly being the last game he will ever play, he will play with some heart and determination (I hope). Each of these games have come down to who has the stronger will to win. I find it a little disrespectful to end a players career as a healthy scratch. :dontgetit:

If Modano isn't in after Hudler's play last game I don't know what to think anymore. You've got one of the greatest players of all-time on the rotting on bench while you're looking down 1-3. I know he isn't the same player but come on. It's like sitting Stevie Y. Hudler was embarrassing on that Boyle goal.

Modano should be in, either for Hudler or Miller. Even Gator is doing something, despite drawing penalties every now and again. Miller's been a bit invisible, and while Hudler's been close, Mo deserves a shot.

Time to shine Modano!!!!!
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.
