Modano Retires

via his Facebook account,

After a long summer of thinking about my future, I’ve come to the decision that it’s time to retire as a player from the NHL. There’s way too many people to thank here at this time and too much to say, so I have a press conference scheduled for early Friday afternoon. Check back Friday late afternoon for more. What a great ride it’s been!

The hardest thing for some athletes is knowing when to hang it up. Enjoy retirement, Mr Willa Ford.

Likely?  I’d say it’s a lock.

Not neccesarily.  There are likely to be other stops between now and several years from now when he can be voted in.

Hmm, we interpreted that differently.  I took it as him saying he would likely get in the HoF, which I feel is inaccurate, and that he is a lock for the HoF.

You mean before someone ELSE writes something rude…

Modano was one hell of a player. Congrats to him on a great career.

And the days of the “flappity flap” sweater are in the books.
Great career indeed.
