We are not sure, but we believe that sound was the distant sound of the Hallelujah Chorus playing in Hockeytown when NHL.com reported:
Mike Babcock expressed his firm belief that the Detroit Red Wings would sign Mike Modano when he gave an exclusive interview to NHL.com last month. Now that it apparently will come true, Babcock is not the least bit surprised.
Modano, who's golfing in Scotland, confirmed via text to the Dallas Morning News on Tuesday that he has decided to play with the Wings. The native of suburban Detroit later confirmed in a text message to The Associated Press that he has agreed to a one-year deal.
The Red Wings’ coach said he’ll be thrilled to add Modano to the lineup.
It's a nice homecoming story, but there is no need to engrave Modano's nor the rest of his new teammates names on the Cup just yet. However, we assume that his wife, Willa Ford will be coming with him, so maybe a small celebration is in order for the fan in the stands at the Joe.
