Mike Modano has a contract offer to make him a Dallas Star for the rest of his career, but after initially agreeing to a deal he "decided to sleep on it." Tuesday was chaotic for Modano as the Boston Bruins, Chicago Blackhawks and Atlanta Thrashers entered discussions for his services. The Bruins appear to have the best chance to persuade Modano to pass on the Stars' offer. The Boston Herald is reporting that the Bruins are offering four years at $21 million. Boston, however, may not be as intent on landing Modano after signing free-agent center Dave Scatchard to a four-year deal Tuesday night. NHL officials said at around 9 a.m. Tuesday that Modano's agent, Brian Lawton, and Armstrong discon8tinued contract talks. Rumors then swirled that the Bruins had signed Modano. At around noon, Hicks called Modano to set up a conference call between himself, Armstrong, Modano and his agent. By 4:30 p.m., an agreement was reached. Modano's decision to wait could be explained in a couple of ways. The Bruins may increase their offer; he could just be conservative.
