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?
No one. Benn moves back to wing. Ok well possibly Wandell, if only because the lineup at the beginning of last season looked good before the Sutherby/Wandell/Brunnstrom line was axed and replaced with Barch and Petersen.
