Mike Modano Back from the Dead

Looks like today is “fake retiring day” First we have reports all over the place about Brett Favre’s 2,349,897th fake retirement, now we have a guy who just retired at the end of this past hockey season, now deciding he wants to come back. And that’s a shame because we already put a nice, complete bow on his career a few months ago:

The man of the evening of this season finale was a man who has never played for the Minnesota Wild franchise, but has more to do with hockey history in the State of Hockey than the Wild have had in their entire decade of existence.  Mike Modano skated in his final game before retiring, the rare professional in this day and age who played his entire career with one organization.  He is the highest scoring American born player in the NHL, and possibly the greatest American skater ever.
