No shocker here. Mike Modano and the Minnesota Wild are discussing a contract to bring the 40-year-old back to Minnesota.
I was wondering last week whether or not the Wild would pursue this. There were rumors Modano was going to play for the Detroit Red Wings, but nothing has happened yet, so there must be some sort of a hold-up.
For a franchise that has lacked players appealing to the "Average Joe," the Wild would be making a good call in bringing the former Minnesota North Stars standout back. I just hope it doesn’t turn out like Ken Griffey Jr. with the Seattle Mariners this year.
