Modano a Flyer?

Modano added that if he leaves Dallas, he'd like to stay in the Pacific Division or go to Philadelphia, where former Stars coach Ken Hitchcock is behind the bench.

"Working with him was the best thing for me, so I'd look at that if they were interested," Modano said.

I'm sure people will be in here saying "but we already have centers!" but quite simply, I think you would make room for a player of that caliber. As you would with Forsberg.

If Modano comes cheap - OK.
He has made huge bucks and if he wants to be here in the new cap era then great at a severe reduction -eg. Handzus money.
If that were to happen then Zus would likely be dealt but a possible scenario all the same.

All depends on money and who Hitch/BC would favour between those two at this point.

Modano at $3 million, and Zeus to another team for a top 4 defenseman and a pick/prospect/role player would not be a horrible idea. I thought Modano and Hitch were not fond of one another, though.

Depends on the price. Like someone else said, at 3 mil/year for 2 years I'd do it and then move Handzus for a d-man. But he's not worth breaking the bank.

i would DEFINITELY make that move...

i think that was over blown, i know that Modano called Hitch when he came to philly to make a joke about coaching Roenick who avoided Dallas when he was a UFA because of Hitch.

I think I would take a pass as well. We already have more than enough centers. Let the young guys play.

Weren't we all amazed at how well Knuble played with Modano at the World Championships? I'd do it.

44 points in 76 games last year. I'd take him at the right price--dirt cheap--but I'm not then moving Handzus simply because I have Modano.

Modano isn't going to come cheaply, regardless of how poorly he played last season (which was for a variety of reasons). As for your second point, you might not move Handzus if the Flyers land Modano, but you can bet Clarke would seriously consider it.

I never said he would. I said I'd sign him if he came cheaply.

I'm not Clarke though, so I can have a differing opinion.

The only reason Modano should be signed is his ability to compete come playoffs. Last year we got to the playoffs with every line capable of scoring and instead had some very important people not come through. Maybe Mike could help us out but I'm not holding my breath.

I say sign Modano for 3 to 3.5 mil, Hatcher for 2 mil. Trade Handzus for another dman.

Last year was a bad season, but he's had a career full of what I described. Look at his seens under Hitch, for example.

Please stop trading Handz. He will be our #2 man this year. He is big, tuff, and hockey smart. Everything Mr. Clarke loves.
