Is it just me, or does it feel like Mike Modano is about to take his Cup and go home?
So, Stars fans, do you feel any better knowing that your team put up a better fight against the Detroit Red Wings in the West finals than the Pittsburgh Penguins have in the Stanley Cup finals?
Didn't think so. Nonetheless, looks like the Wings will hoist their fourth Cup in 11 years in about, oh, nine hours.
And, Stars fans, are you as iffy about Mike Modano’s return as – apparently – he is?
Energized by Dallas’ playoff run, on one hand he wants to come back to pursue another savory sip from the Cup. On the other hand, he’s been doing this for almost 20 years and he’d be playing for less money and in a decreased role as the No. 3 center.
Like most of us, I bet ol’ Mo just wishes we could skip the regular season and begin with the good stuff in April. You listening, Mr. Bettman? -- Richie Whitt
