08:38 AM ET 07.17 | Even Mike Modano said he thinks the notion is a little far-fetched, but he added that he wouldn't mind pondering a comeback for one season. Modano, 42, retired before last season. He played one last year with Detroit in 2010-11, which ended with a fluke injury where his wrist was cut by a skate blade. He was at American Airlines Center today talking about his selection for induction into the US Hockey Hall of Fame, when the topic of a possible comeback came up. "We don't know yet," Modano said when pressed on the issue. "I've still got a lot of working out to do." Modano said he started working out on Monday, but not with a comeback in mind, rather with the thought of "what the heck." "I don't know," he said. "You look at things and you wonder what's the worst thing that could happen? I mean, I get in better shape. I don't know what's going to happen with the CBA and everything, but I mean, one more year? That kind of intrigues me."

Yah think? But its the "thinking about a comeback/will he or won't he retire" kind of story that the interns love.

I guess they're expanding to include Americans now.

I started working out on Monday, I feel great, so why not. Makes sense.

As far as I'm concerned, Modano can stay retired but .... we'll take Willa. I know you're all anxious to take a shot at her five hole.
