Detroit Wanted Modano

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

They believed enough in Modano to fly him in and sell him on the franchise. Imagine, selling someone on what is arguably the best managed and most successful franchise in the NHL for the better part of the last two decades.

Detroit has won 15 division championships – and four Stanley Cups – in the last 20 seasons. The Red Wings typically are top five in scoring and in power-play success. They have produced numerous All-Stars and trophy winners.

And they seriously believe Modano will make them better.

That is intoxicating to a guy who was just told that he should look elsewhere.
