[Report] Modano would consider coming back for Minnesota


Recommended Posts

Modano to Wild? He'd consider

Mike Modano announced his retirement last summer, but the former Minnesota North Star told radio host Josh Rimer that he'd listen if the Minnesota Wild asked him to return to the NHL.

“If the Wild contacted me I’d listen to what they would have to say, certainly would be a fitting ending to a career obviously going back to Minnesota and what that town and what the fans meant to me,” Modano said. ”To play with those guys (Zach Parise/Ryan Suter) and play in front of the fans again back where it started would be pretty unique.”

Nobody is exactly sure how serious Modano was about the claim. The former first-overall pick finished his career with 1,374 points in 1,499 games between the North Stars, Dallas Stars and Detroit Red Wings.

Sigh... The 'investigation' would be Modano's own twitter, in which he joked about his initial wanting to come back to the '#northstars' after the Suter and Parise signings, him 'playing for free, but being paid to practice', then him setting a joke 'deadline' for the #mnwild to accept his offer, which has passed, 'ending his comeback dream.'

He refers to himself as an oldass golfer now. He is retired. There will be no actual comeback. Case closed.

Nice report though. Slow news time filler.

The Wild are probably going to have to trade a couple players before the start of the season as it is, especially if some of the prospects prove they belong on the 2nd line in the NHL... so even if Modano wanted to come to the Wild... sorry, there is "no room at the inn" for him.
