Watch The Mike Modano Press Conference

added 2:03pm, Live feed of press conference now available below…

added 2:25pm, press conference is over and I will try to get an archived feed of it later today.

Hopefully you can watch the Modano press conference below starting at 2:00pm ET.  In the meantime….

from Dan Rosen of NHL.com,

Modano will start camp centering the third line between Cleary and Hudler. Holland said if they don’t develop chemistry, Modano could switch with Filppula and play between Franzen and Bertuzzi. Filppula has played with Hudler and Cleary in the past.

“I see (Modano) maybe playing 14 to 16 minutes a night guy and probably in his prime he played 18 to 22,” Holland said. “There are going to be nights when he’s probably feeling good and he’s dancing, and Babcock is going to get him out there more. There will be other nights when you can tell he just doesn’t have it and somebody else will play more.”

Holland - - we are as deep up front as we have been in quite some time.

A big difference from last season. It’s nice to see a confident Mr.I.

“Good omen” indeed.
