Modano to Red Wings

Quote:
"They're selling it pretty hard," Modano told ESNPDallas.com. "Having a team like Detroit really interested in me is flattering. I could have some fun playing with some great players and a great organization. There's a lot of upside to it. But for me, I need to figure out in my head what I want to do."

"He's a local boy, a Hall of Famer, yeah, I'm interested," Detroit general manager Ken Holland told the Detroit Free Press last week. "We've had good success through the years in getting the most out of players that are nearing the end."

Dude, there's already several threads on this. Including ones that cite this story.

Thanks for getting my hopes up though. Thought there was new news.

[edit] That cite that Holland/Modano quote, not the TSN article. TSN is reporting stuff other sites have already reported.

[second edit] This post was in a thread that got merged into this one.

the Red Wings take the old players who have a year or two left and give them a cup before they retire. pretty cool little service they do there.

Haha, seriously. Larry Murphy, Chris Chelios, Brett Hull, Luc Robatille, Dominik Hasek, Dallas Drake...

Will they add Modano to that list? I hope so! I will say though, as a hockey fan it would be really weird to see Modano playing for someone who isn't The Stars. Especially after the send out he got in his last game in Dallas.

Detroit would be a very suitable team for Modano. Can't wait to see that.

According to Ken Campbell of Thehockeynews.com

Quote:
The Detroit Red Wings are willing to offer Mike Modano a one- or two-year deal at a base salary of between $1 million and $1.5 million per season, THN.com has learned.

If Modano, 40, signs for one year only, the Red Wings would also be permitted to offer him performance bonuses.

Under the collective bargaining agreement, teams are allowed to go 7.5 percent over the salary cap which amounts to $4.47 million as a bonus cushion for entry level players and over 35 players who are on one-year deals.

Any amount the team goes over the cap due to the bonuses can be applied to the cap the next season.

According to John Shannon from Sportsnet, 4 teams are after Modano.

Modano on joining the Blackhawks
Quote:
"I'd like to see what kind of wiggle room they have left under the salary cap, if they can fill that third- or fourth-line void and see how I would fit in with those guys," said Modano, the all-time leader in goals (557) and assists (802) among U.S. players. "They have a great nucleus of kids. So there is a lot of interest there. Obviously, coming off the type of year they've had there's a lot of excitement for anybody who has Chicago on their list of options."

From the Red Wings website, not much new except this.

Quote:
“You’re talking about a guy, who is one of the greatest American players ever to play with one franchise,” Holland said. “Do you want to finish your career with another team, and I think that’s one of the things he’s going through.

“Now it’s a little unique in the sense that this is his hometown; this is where he was born and raised and his parents live here. It’s an opportunity for him to finish his career in his hometown and playing in front of family and friends. But again, at the end of the day, everything has to piece in together.”

The Inside on Pittsburgh sports said Pittsburgh, San Jose and NY Rangers have reached out to Modano.
Personally id like to see him go to Pitt for around 1mil and play the wing with Crobsy or Malkin, hes got the talent playing wing would give him less responsibility and space to cover, and hes far superior talent wise to pascal dupuis or any other bum they are going to try with those guys this year, i could see him getting 25 -30 goals playing with either of them

I wouldn't mind Modano if cheap. We would have to dump Reasoner and Kopecky (Would suck to lose him)

Lets say we sign Modano at 1.1 mil and can resign Niemi at 2.25 hit and Hjalmarsson 2.7 hit


Beach (1.171) - Toews (6.3) - Kane (6.3)
Stalberg (.850) - Bolland (3.375) - Hossa (5.275)
Sharp (3.9) - Modano (1.1) - Skille (.875)
Bickell (.675) - Dowell (.525) - Brouwer (1.025)
Klinkhammer (.500)

Keith (5.538) - Seabrook (3.5)
Campbell (7.143) - Hjalmarsson (2.7)
Vishnevskiy (.822) - Connelly (.875)
Scott (.512)

Niemi (2.25)
Toivonen (.650)

Damn that would still be a great forward group and we can continue to role 4 lines

Vishnevskiy and Connelly can replace the 14 and 11 minutes of gametime Sopel and Hendry had

Call me crazy, but I'm actually getting excited now, wondering where he'll end up.

Would've been fine seeing him end his career in Dallas, and it still wouldn't surprise me if he decides to retire, but if there's still some juice left in the tank, I hope he proves the doubters wrong in whichever city he ends up signing with.

I don't want him to end up anywhere. This is coming from a Ducks fan who generally dislikes the Stars and everything about them. I think it'd suck to see him play for another team in his career.

Mike Modano says only team he'll play for is Wings
Chris McCosky / The Detroit News

Detroit -- Forget about the Blackhawks or any other NHL team. If Westland native Mike Modano decides he wants to play hockey next season, he is going play for the Red Wings.

"There isn't any other team," said Modano, standing outside Tigers and Red Wings owner Mike Ilitch's suite at Comerica Park Tuesday night. "It will be here or I'm not playing. I think it's narrowed to that."

From The Detroit News: http://detnews.com/article/20100706/...#ixzz0sx5MjwSu

My favorite player growing up and I'm going to hate seeing him in another uniform. I honestly wish he would retire but if he still wants to play then he should play.

I hate Joe N as the GM more and more every day. Starting with the Crawford hire and then making room for garbage like Burish over Modano.

Holland said there was no timetable on Modano, except for the one Modano puts on himself.

"The sooner the better," Modano said of his decision. "I know they would love to get an answer so they can get their cap and their roster situated. I don't want to delay this."
Good to see he won't hold any teams hostage with "will I or won't I" fencesitting, like certain all-star calibre players have done in the past.

This might be done by the end of the week.

And agreed with above....Joe closed the door on Modano, and while Modano says they remain amicable, that sure as hell doesn't mean the rest of the Stars fanbase is ok with the decision to turn him away.

Not more than me brah. The guy has been a joke since day 1 and Im afraid if he is here too much longer, there won't be much of a team left for the next GM.

There was ZERO reason to fire Tippett. His hiring didn't exactly make my hockey pants go crazy, but he had recent success and had this team heading in the right direction.

So, let me get this straight Joe and Tom, Modano isn't good enough to be on our 3rd line, or even our 4th line, yet he is good enough for the freaking RED WINGS or the Stanley Cup Champion BLACKHAWKS to want him. We have an enforcer, there is NO reason to sign Burish.

If he had handled the goalie situation correctly, he would have traded Turco after acquiring Lehtonen, or traded Auld, and looked at the possibility of bringing back Turco as a backup. Instead, he waives Auld, who just signed with another team, and lets Turco walk.

I'll be rooting for whatever team Mo signs with, if he does sign with someone.
