Real_ESPNLeBrun: Stars will announce shortly they've signed Mike Modano. This way he retires a Star

Real_ESPNLeBrun: Modano's one-year deal will be for $999,999 (his number). Of course he won't collect since he's retiring. But cute

Isn't a 35+ deal that would count against the cap, even if he retires?

edit: I guess when you're 14 million under the cap, it doesn't matter.

Now why couldn't Sundin have done that with the Leafs, even for the min contract, would have been nice.

We were already dinged with a $1.4mil cap penalty the season after Sundin retired, and had the Tucker/Raycroft buyouts to deal with as well. That'd be quite a bit of wasted cap space for a team that was close to the ceiling.
