from Dave Waddell of the Windsor Star,
Modano was asked if Wings coach Mike Babcock’s training camp regime is all that different from what’s he experienced in Dallas.
The Livonia native was surprisingly blunt in his comparisons to Stars’camps run the past three seasons by former coach Dave Tippett and current Dallas bench boss Marc Crawford.
“The last two or three years there’s been a real big difference,” Modano said.
“I think the pace and tempo is night and day from what we’re used to. Very similar to what Hitch (Ken Hitchcock) was doing in the last 90s early 2000, similar style.
“You needed to be in shape. You needed to skate hard to be effective.
“That’s kind of my situation now is to play a little catchup and try to refer back to those days how we played.”
