"Stars captain Mike Modano is back again and has history in his sights this season. Modano, who was born in Livonia, Michigan, enters the 2007-08 season just seven points away from establishing a new NHL record for points by a U.S.-born player. Phil Housley holds the mark with 1,232 points."
Is it possible that the delay in the negotiations between the Preds and the city of Nashville are because the city and the Preds have been too busy planning the parade route through downtown in case Modano gets a few points on Friday, then breaks the record in Nashville on Saturday? I know they’ve bought the bouquet of flowers, they’ve bought the chocolate, they have prepared the musical tribute and video montage, bought plane tickets for his family, and have arranged for George Bush to make his congratulatory phone call, but there are a lot of logistics involved with a parade route.
