No Mo Tonight

from George Malik of Snapshots at Mlive,

The guy who charges people $20 to look at a “chart” of rumors stated this afternoon that Mike Modano will sign with the Red Wings “as early as” tonight, but, as noted this morning:...

...and I’m allowed to quote this, “Holland says Modano is vacationing in Europe until middle of next (this) week. He expects a decision sometime after Mo returns.”

a bit more...

Phew… I got a week off between posts, then today I wrote a long piece comparing Modano to Favre and/or Lebron. I don’t want this guy on my team, but if he’s coming he should at least wait a little for my post to make some sense.

I seem to recall reading that Modano was going to resume skating after the 5th of August. He will sign or retire some time after that. [A4] Where’s my $20?

Paul, and George, can you please stop spreading this guy’s BS? He doesn’t deserve the publicity.

wow. bottom line is he would be an awesome 3rd liner and PP guy.  I can’t believe you are all down on him. Its not his fault the Detroit Media is reporting every little tidbit about him. 

I can say that if we hadn’t heard one word about all this signing saga and then suddenly we just signed Mike Modano out of the blue tomorrow everyone here would’ve wetted themselves with joy and congratulated Holland up and down on landing such a dynamic player.

And all this crap about how bad Marty Turco is…unbelievable. You wouldn’t want him as your starting goalie for under 2 mil. Its insane.  You all realize that he wouldn’t have to play against the wings if he was on the team, right? He’s on my fantasy hockey team next year…even if Chicago struggle to make the playoffs…give me a break.

Oh, is that what you can say?

You can say we’d all be happy with them signing a washed-up 40 year old JUST because he lived in Livonia as a child, and we had to get rid of one or more solid young players who could be key players in the future?

For one year of Modano?

Yeah, nice to know that you “can say” brilliant things like that with your head up your ass.
