It's too bad how his stay here went I think he had a lot more to give. I wish we played him more in the playoffs. However, he's done. 42 and his best skill in his prime was his skating. If he somehow managed a 82 game season on a good team he might net 10 goals and 30 points at the most.

but would be cool if I was wrong and he pulled a Selanne. I always liked Mike.

I wasn't saying he should join us I was saying he is still got "it" and could even be a Red Wing if circumstances were right. I don't think he needs to be here either.


Honestly, I wouldn't even mind if he came here on a small contract. Should he play with anybody? I don't know, if he feels hockey ready and shows someone that he can still work it, then by all means. If Holland can't get anybody through free agency, I would consider it.

And granted we do need defense madono is and was a great defensive presence when needed


Really? Let me guess, you are advocating for Holland to re-sign Hasek too?

Not that I think we should sign him, but it's a shame that he's getting so much grief here about his time as a Wing. He never really got a chance to get going so it's hard to say how things might have ended up if not for such a freak incident. It wasn't as if he pulled his groin because he was too old or something; he got sliced open by a skate blade! Who's to say how he might have looked at the end of the season had he been able to get comfortable with his game here? Some say he started slow, and his conditioning wasn't all there, but for an older player, I'm willing to overlook it if he has legs in the playoffs when it counts. I tend to think he would have risen to the occasion if not for the rather major setback. It was a real shame that it had to end that way. I'm not bitter at all; it was just an unfortunate situation that really was out of everyone's control. It could have happened to anyone.

I heard Maltby is coming back, too. Get it done, Ken! :ph34r:

The only reason Modano wants to come back is because he discovered how expensive it is to feed his fatass dog.

Bring back 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.

Your misinterpreting. No one here is giving him grief about his time as a wing, and certainly none of us here are bitter towards him. I was really excited when he first signed here and it was just a huge shame for his career to end with a freak injury before he even got a chance with us. I so badly wanted him to go out on top as a wing. Would have been an awesome end to the awesome career of an awesome player....awesome. Like 2 ppl here gave him grief and I don't think they even realized he was injured by a skate so forget them.

Fact is, there is no room for him here...we don't even have enough room for the players we already have signed...He's a bottom 6 forward and we have 10 bottom 6 forwards....I'm a very pro-Holland guy, but it would be beyond moronic for him to sign Mo right now. I wish him luck elsewhere though....if another team actually gives him a contract, which I don't think will happen.

He should stay retired and spend more time with Willa Ford.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Same goes for Sheldon Souray. Why's he even still playing?

Modano didn't have "it" when he played here 2 years ago. He didn't have "it" his last 2 seasons in Dallas, that's why they stuck him on the 4th line. He had half a season to "get it going" and couldn't. He's been washed up for 4-5 years, who in their right mind thinks he has anything left to offer? Mike Modano WAS a great hockey player, one of the best in the league during his time. But his time is over, and has been for some time. It needs to stay that way.
