from Mke Heika of the Dallas Morning News,
...the bottom line is Modano has to find a way to make himself happy in the new place. If he can’t do that, he just might retire. Quite honestly, I think he could see himself happy in a lot of situations. I think Minnesota is too close to Dallas in that the Wild is rebuilding, as well, but I do think he would be energized by the Red Wings or Sharks. And, if you look around, there are other teams that could use his services. It wouldn’t surprise me if a couple of more GMs contact him this week.
So what does that all mean? Modano is still deciding. It’s a huge step to emerge from a divorce like this. He’s been on his first date now, and I think he’s processing that information. He has the time, and appears to have a few options, so teams will just have to wait and see what he’s thinking. Could a team like Detroit close the door? Sure, but I think the Red Wings knew this was going to be a process, and they are being patient with Modano.
