According to Red Wings coach Mike Babcock, the signing is inevitable.â†µ
“This is a no brainer for Mike Modano — the highest scoring American player of all time to come back to your hometown, play in Hockeytown,” Babcock said, according to the Website. “It’s not about the cash, it’s about the legacy and the fit. He’ll fit and he’ll be excited to play. I look forward to him signing. I think that’s inevitable. I think that’s what is going to happen.”â†µ
It was going to be weird seeing Modano in a different uniform next year, but as a Red Wing? That’s really going to hurt.
