Wild, Sharks show interest in Modano

ESPN: Wild, Sharks show interest in Modano

Originally Posted by ESPN Dallas
The market for Mike Modano's services appears to be growing. The 40-year-old forward said Friday that the San Jose Sharks and Minnesota Wild have contacted him about the possibility of playing next season.

That comes days after he met in Detroit with Red Wings personnel.

Modano said Minnesota may want to meet face-to-face with him soon, but no date has been set.

"It would be a fun storyline," Modano said, referring to the fact that he was drafted by the Minnesota North Stars in 1988 and moved with the franchise to Dallas. He played his final game of 2010 in Minnesota, donning an old North Stars jersey as he waved goodbye. "It's the same scenario. I'm listening to what everyone has to say and taking it all in. I still have to decide if I'm going to play."
I thought that this was interesting because a lot of people seem to like the idea of Modano playing again for the city that he was drafted by (yes, not the same team, I know).

Also, a Wild blogger's take: http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Brad-...-Wild/78/29279

I think we should merge all the modano threads into a single all modano talk thread. I still think the Red Wings are his first choice at the moment, but SJ would be a good situation for him too because of his wife.

While I know this is not exactly on topic, but please do not listen to this guy. He claims to be a writer for the Wild, but he knows nothing about the Wild.

Exhibit A

Quote:
Per capgeek.com, #mnwild have 16 players under contract for next season and have $15,707,223.00 in cap space left to sign the remaining 7

about 23 hours ago via web
Except, if you go to CapGeek.com, the Wild have 23 players under contract, woth the remaining cap space at $3,528,974. There are a few guys not counted for, but enough for a difference of $12million.

So for a guy who claims to be a beat writer for the Wild, he can't even get his fact straight.

this same 'writer' pulled the Cullen prediction out his asscanal but even then he had Cullen lumped in with a few other names; basically, any of us could have narrowed down the list of UFA centres and taken a stab... i find some posters here at HFBoards to be considerably more informed than him.

I like the idea of Modano coming back to Minnesota to finish his career. He would be a great veteran for us to have and could provide some solid depth in that center spot for us and could help out in some ways still.

Yes, but if you followed Michael Russo, the real Minnesota Wild's beat writer, he was advocating Matt Cullen since trade deadline...

Doesn't seem to much of an accomplishment when the beat writer who did suggest Cullen has been doing all season long...

I'd love to have Modano if it's under 1 million.

Why is it mostly non-Wild fans saying it'd be sick if he signed with us?

If he plays another year it will be with a winner. Which will take Minnesota out of the equation.

Just retire.

Those of us who were around when the North Stars left remember your comments, Mike. We don't want you, we don't need you and we'd rather not bother with you.

Please.... Someone else sign him, or someone convince him to retire. I want nothing to do with this guy....

The Wings aren't the only team that cares. We care as well along with the Wild.

Sorry. But the person I quoted brought the Wild down and I didn't wanna go down alone.

In your defense, you guys tear it up in the regular season...
