Abdelkader hasn't played 82 NHL games yet in a season. He'll likely struggle as he paces himself. It's understandable that they want a more reliable veteran in there.
And he never will if they keep signing washed up 40 yr olds to play in front of him. Hey I know lets sign Maltby and Chelios probably still wants to play I'm sure? we could sign him up again so we could lose Kindl on waivers. Makes total sense.
Modano had ONE Stanley Cup ring TWELVE years ago this year!
I wouldn't exactly call that winning over and over again like some of the Wings players or Colorado players or New Jersey players. LOL
If he is STILL so good why has Dallas sunk the last two years and why have they let him go????
Some players just have to know when to hang it up!!!
Kind of reminds me of Schneider who won a cup his first year in the NHL as a rookie and was never able to repeat again.... even with the Wings. He was useless.
Yeah-- shocking that a 40 year old Modano who we're asking to be on our 3rd line couldn't raise the s***ty 09-10 Stars out of mediocrity.
You're brilliant! Quick-- someone call the Hall of Fame and tell them to scrap the future Modano exhibit because some troll discovered the all time highest scoring American isn't actually all that good.
Christ. Your already wafer thin credibility took another shot when you said Modano can't skate anymore (proving that you have know knowledge of him whatsoever).
Maybe the guy thought no one in the world cared if he was around any more. This story showed that two guys did care. It can change someone's outlook.
I know someone who was going thru a hard time and try to take thier own life...and now 22 yrs later she is the best thing that has ever happened to me, so I married her. She's pregnant with our child right now.
Looking at her now, no one would ever believe she ever tried to kill herself. She doesn't waste a moment, overfilling with life, motivates me, challenges me, and inspires me.
I am glad someone else finally said it, Red Wings need a change. I am so effing tired of the crappy wheel with a wing. I mean WTF kind of logo is that? I am also in favor of changing the name... When I see "Red Wings" I think of a used maxi pad.
