from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,
It’s not like Mike Modano had to pull up the moving van and take all his furniture to Detroit, but Tuesday was nonetheless a challenging day for the former Stars center.
He and wife Mandy (who goes by the stage name of Willa Ford) have rented a home in the Detroit area, and Modano is leaving today to play for the Red Wings, who signed him to a one-year contract. He packed up his clothes and a ton of personal things and had some friends drive it up for him. He will take a flight to Detroit today and start what will be a one-year adventure.
Will it last longer than that? Modano doesn’t know, but the man who was told he would not be offered a new contract with the Stars after 20 seasons with the organization knows he wants to play more hockey, and he knows Detroit is a pretty good place to play it.
