Mike Modano is an American born NHL player who has earned his stripes in the NHL ranks over the years. He was the second American born NHL player to be drafted first overall in the 1988 Entry Draft and has since become one of the best American born players ever. Modano has also earned several accomplishments. In 1999 he won the Stanley Cup with the Dallas Stars, He also has the most points by an American born player. Currently Modano has 1359 pts in his NHL career with more hopefully on the way with 557 career goals.
These reasons among others is why Detroit wants to sign Modano as a free agent. Modano can easily average a 25-30 goal season provided he is healthy, Modano only played 59 games last year and had a 30 point season his lowest in his NHL career. Modano would be an excellent fit for the Red Wings giving them yet another good scoring producer, I don’t know if this will bring them a cup but as always should the Wings stay healthy they will be a force no doubt this coming year.
