Today, ESPN Dallas’ Richard Durrett interviewed Mike Modano and caused several high-scale anxiety attacks across the Dallas- Fort Worth area. Mo revealed that if he’ll actually consider signing with another team for next season.
The more and more I look at the situation here, I come to believe I’m not in the scheme of things here. If I had to play, I may have to look at going elsewhere.
He just can’t sign with another team. Mike Modano is no Brett Favre, who goes team to team never looking back at the Green Bay Packers who got him to this point.
If Mo went to a different team, it just wouldn’t be right. I’m pretty sure that every hockey fan on earth would agree that it’s only right for a franchise player like Modano to retire with that franchise. Think Yzerman and the Red Wings and Sakic and the Avs. It’s the same situation here and now.
Face it: we don’t want Mo to do a Brett Hull-Coyotes thing. It’s just not right. Now, I’m all for resigning Mo and dealing with the repurcussions. It would hurt a lot less than seeing him in another team’s jersey.
Oh, mighty Hockey Gods, please, please, PLEASE let Mo retire as a Star. It’s all I ask.
