from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,
Three teams were pursuing Mike Modano at the trade deadline, but Modano said he did not want to waive his no-trade clause and leave the only team he has been a part of.
Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk, who flew in from the NHL GM meetings in Florida for the Buffalo game, confirmed when asked about the situation that he asked Modano the day before the trade deadline if he wanted to pursue a move. Nieuwendyk said he did not get to a place where he was negotiating deals, because he first had to establish if Modano was open to leaving. Nieuwendyk said he did not want to reveal the teams, but Modano said one was Washington.
“We talked about this a couple of months ago, and we agreed at the time that if there were teams interested, I would bring the information to Mike,’’ Nieuwendyk said. “I did that, and he decided he wanted to stay.”
