Just a thought.
I figure it must mean that Ken Holland is lowballing him, it's very much what Holland should be doing in this position too, where Modano is a luxury, rather than a necessity.

So Modano by announcing it is presumably saying "look guys, only detroit has spoken to me, so if you put a bid in you will be a main contender" to try and get maybe another team he would prefer to play for, or just get more people in the bidding and get a decent offer from someone.

The alternative that I choose to believe is that Ken Holland is signing a 5/6 Defenseman and his offer to Modano was "whatever is leftover" so Modano is waiting patiently for that to happen.
