Sign him and then send him down to Houston so he can play where they appreciate hockey.

I never saw him get booed at any of the Stars games I went to...to include his final one in Dallas. You know the game where WE gave him a standing ovation and even had a short clip on the screens for him?

Yeah I remember that game, but I recollect he did in fact get booed at other games when the Stars were in town. It's been a while though.

He had his chance to end his career here and he passed on it to play with the god damned wings.

Plus he was always talking up the Stars move to Dallas like he genuinely loved the move. I don't like that.

So yeah, no way in hell do I want him here.

He is playing for the team that gives him his check. You don't bite the hand that feeds you. At that junction, was the team already 100% "yes we are going to dallas no matter what?" I wasn't living here then so I ask out of genuine curiosity.

He could have pulled a Coach Orion.

I would be only ok if he signed a PTO for one PRE-SEASON home game, then immediately retires after that game.

The title says Mike Modano tempted to make a comeback.

Teams named in the articles are " Red Wings de Detroit, les Sharks de San Jose et le Wild du Minnesota"

Sign him then send him to the Sun Bears

He and Lou can hang out on the beach and reminisce about being important.

I realize that Modano spewed some nonsense as the Stars were moving do Dallas...but for some reason, I still always liked him as a player and when the lockout lifted and he was a free agent, I was really hoping the Wild could bring him into the fold. Was always one of my favorite players. Not many players I would pay to just watch skate, but he was one of them.
