DALLAS (CBS SPORTS) – When Zach Parise and Ryan Suter signed with the Wild, Minnesotans were obviously excited. That included players who used to ply their trade in Minnesota like longtime Star (and North Star) Mike Modano.
Modano, who retired before last season after finishing his career back in his hometown of Detroit, was so excited that he tweeted this a short while after the news came down. He asked, “Can I come back and play in Minnesota too..?”
Kind of funny, but his tongue had to be firmly in his cheek, right? Modano is 42 years old, he was just playing with the idea of playing again, wasn’t he?
Well, only a little. Modano was asked if he was being serious or not by Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News. “I don’t know,” he said. “You look at things and you wonder what’s the worst thing that could happen? I mean, I get in better shape. I don’t know what’s going to happen with the CBA and everything, but I mean, one more year? That kind of intrigues me.”
