I'm not trying to start anything here.

I have no inside knowledge. I haven't heard any rumors, or even whispers of rumors, from the Detroit Red Wings front office.

For the past two decades, the Red Wings have been the most successful franchise in the NHL.

A great deal of that success has been the result of acquiring veteran talent, often plucked from the scrap heaps of other teams.

But, for every one of these players, there's a Wendel Clark or Jamie Macoun lurking in the darkness.

Someone who came in and did little to nothing to help the team.

There's no doubt the Red Wings are erotically attracted to veteran players.

This being the case, they should jump into a cold shower until Mike Modano retires or is signed by another team.

The Dallas Stars have made it crystal clear that they will not offer Modano a new contract.
