I think this is a big mistake by the Stars. Modano has been in Dallas since the Stars got here and is undoubtedly the face of the franchise. He's done more to sell hockey than anyone else and has been the most popular Star for a long time. Business-wise, I don't see how Modano walks while Zubov stays (hockey-wise, I can understand). Hockey is a tough enough sell in Dallas already, especially after the lock out; I foresee small crowds and smaller tv ratings.

there has also been talk that the Modano signing would be a precurser to the Bruins trading Thorton's rights. I want Thorton to stay a bruin, but management there has done so little right in the last 20 years that I wouldn't blame him for leaving.

Now THIS is what's been missing for a year. It's good to have it all back. Love all of this activity, and the Flames have joined the fun in signing Tony Almonte and Darren McCarty.
Wait, did I just say THE FLAMES HAVE JOINED THE FUN AND SIGNED FREE AGENTS????
I love this salary cap stuff. If this is what's to be expected every year, I like it.
EDIT: Apparently, THREE Canadian clubs have expressed a severe interest in signing a certian All-World defenseman from New Jersey. Two of which are "small markets" based out of Western Canada. I'm hoping either one of those two land him, because that would be a HUGE difference maker.
And Dunk: Kevin Weekes, Marek Malik, and Martin Straka all signed with the Rangers.

Marek Malik - isn't he the third string 2 Guard for the Portland Trailblazers ?
Hopefully the Rangers are being smart (yeah, right) and saving their cash for next year's UFA crop. The problem is, I just can't see Slats resisting making a run at Naslund & Forsberg (Ulf & Anders Part 2)
