Well, Dallas ain't making the playoffs, and Modano has an appedectomy. I suppose he'll come back in time for the last games. You do have to think that this is it for Mike.

Not much love for Modano around here. Dallas' last home game is Apr. 8 against Anaheim. Their last game, fittingly enough if Modano does retire (and is playing), is in Minnesota on Apr. 10.

Where is the cutoff when it comes to Hall eligibility and retirement? I assume Sakic and Sundin are separate from Modano (assuming he retires this offseason) but I'm just not 100% certain since both took their sweet time before finally announcing it.

That being said I don't think there's a ton of doubt that Heroin Mike should be a first-ballot HOFer. The argument that he didn't wear the "C" in Dallas when they won it all (and was summarily stripped of it later on in a most embarrassing fashion) is, to me, just plain silly.

So far these look like the top candidates for the Class of 2013 (assuming Sakic and Sundin are 2012):

Teemu Selanne
Mike Modano
Chris Chelios
Nicklas Lidstrom (???)
Scott Niedermayer

Should Lids retire (actually about the only guy we can guarantee walking away is Selanne) then it's possible Mo doesn't get in his first time. Oh well, dude made millions playing hockey, won the Stanley Cup, got to bang any woman he wanted, and comes home to Willa Ford every day. I think he'll be fine regardless.

He also never mentioned these facts in that argument, and as a future international hockey blogger, I'm taking notes...

Modano: 1996 World Cup winner, 2002 Olympic Silver Medalist
Sundin: 2006 Olympic Gold Medalist.

It's worth mentioning their international achievements. I wouldn't say it tips it should decide it, but focusing exclusively on NHL numbers shouldn't be all the HHOF is about.

Modano had a point per game in those two playoffs. It's not like we're arguing for Scott Gomez here.

It appears as though Hockey Hall of Famer Brett Hull is attempting to put together a group to purchase the Dallas Stars from owner Tom Hicks. According to a published report in the Dallas Observer, Hull is attempting to bring Wayne Gretzky and Mike Modano on board.

I don't think I ever heard the heroin rumo(u)r. What is the story there? Or- the supposed story that is referenced.

Years ago he was bitching about getting bruises from so many hooks on his arms that he and his teammates looked like heroin addicts after games, so me and Cali ran with it, much to the chagrin of LOABA. :lol:

Well that clears that up I was always wondering the same thing.
