Wings should forget Sundin, Demitra and Bertuzzi. All these guys will be available in the "rent a player category" by years end. They should go back and Jason Williams for 1.5 to 1.8 mil. Williams was a very good player on the second/third line when with the Wings and may want to come back, I know he felt jadded when he was traded but the Wings have a way of getting folks to come back.
This leaves us plenty of money at years end and for next year when need to lock up Hank and The Mule.

"The Hawks won't be doing much more during free agency. They're at the cap, meaning it will be hard to bring back unrestricted free agents Jason Williams and Kevyn Adams, though Tallon said re-signing those two remains under consideration."
Modano is a first ballot hall of famer, no doubt about it.
I agree with the other's being kinda shaky overall, epsecially on first ballot.
First, thanks for your highly intelligent and thoughtful response to my suggestion. Second, the last part of my statement read "if he gets in then he gets in." If Modano is a first ballot HOF than why not Selanne or Sundin? If Modano gets first ballot it is b/c he is American born (b/c there are so few that were this good) not because he was dominant. Remember the thread stated, if he left now, and if Modano left now, he would not be a first ballot HOF but I believe a HOF one day.
