The Malik Report

ESPN Dallas’s Richard Durrett reports that Dallas Stars legend and former Red Wings forward Mike Modano plans on deciding whether he will retire or attempt to continue playing by the middle of September, but in the interim, Modano’s availing himself of his post-career options:
“It’s tough to think about letting go because it’s been a part of your life since you were a kid,” Modano said Friday. “You have to see how you feel and how much you want to do it. I’m still on the fence.”
Modano said he’s talked with several of the league’s television broadcast partners about the possibility of working on the air but isn’t sure what might be available. That includes Fox Sports Southwest, which broadcasts most of the Stars’ regular-season games.
“I’ve filled in a few times doing some analysis and enjoyed it,” Modano said. “Talking about the game is easy, but it’s a matter of getting the TV time under your belt where you feel comfortable with your delivery.”
Modano said he’d also be interested in working for the Stars organization once it has a new owner in place. Modano believes he could help with the club’s marketing.
“We need to get the fan base back up and excited again,” Modano said. “I’d be interested in working for them and doing that.”
