Injured for the last 2 season, but bring him back and not your leader. I been a fan since 1980, and am disgusted in this move. Even considered cheering for the team that signs Mike. I am that angry. Also when is Hick's going to sell this team?
Barch and Modano are two different players, who fill different needs. If the Stars did sign Modano, they would have this logjam up the middle: Richards, Ribeiro, Benn, Wandell, Modano, Sutherby. Who does Modano steal his minutes from? Because that's what would be happening. He is not even 4th best in center depth. Are we suppose to accommodate him and move other players around so he can his one-more-year-of-glory? Modano didn't even attend practices anymore regularly. His motivation and commitment were inconsistent. So after all that, how could you possibly offer him another contract, unless putting the best product on the ice isn't top priority?
