HRM Vol. 4: Donald Brashear Back to Capitals, Mike Modano Draws Wild Interest

Hockey Rumor MillContributor IJune 29, 2010

The latest information to hit my desk!

The New York Rangers waived veteran enforcer Donald Brashear today, and there are some rumblings coming from a source at the Capitals that suggest the team is interested in bringing the enforcer back.

He has only one year remaining on his contract, and the Capitals lacked a fighting presence all of last season. There is no other player in the Capitals' system that could bring what Brashear does. Don’t kid yourselves with Brandon Sugden.

Brashear to the Capitals: HRM 2

Meanwhile, the Stars announced today that Mike Modano will not be returning. Although I have personally heard that the Sharks may be a likely team to make him an offer, the real team that is doing so are the Minnesota Wild.

According to our various reports, come July 1, the Wild will make an offer to Modano so that he can finish his career where it began, in Minny.
