Dallas Signs Modano (retires as a Star)

@Real_ESPNLeBrun Pierre LeBrun
Stars will announce shortly they've signed Mike Modano. This way he retires a Star

Overpaying an old washed-up vet. Poor move by Stars.

Too late. His legacy will be as a Red Wing.

So was it really worth playing one year with the red wings? That's how I'll always remember him in the end.

No, that only happens for multi-year contracts.

He'll probably get a league minimum for 1 year. According to capgeek, the Stars have $14.4m in cap and 23 players under contract. A 500k, 1 yr deal is not going to break the bank. I know Stars fans wanted Mo to retire in Dallas. They had a beautiful farewell for him at the end of 2010. This is a classy move by Nieuwendyk, and a nice nod to the the fans in Dallas that were so good to both players in there time there.
