Default Stars' Mike Modano didn't want to leave team

hree teams were pursuing Mike Modano at the trade deadline, but Modano said he did not want to waive his no-trade clause and leave the only team he has been a part of.

Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk confirmed Wednesday night that he asked Modano the day before the trade deadline if he wanted to pursue a move. Nieuwendyk said he didn't start negotiating deals because he first had to establish if Modano was open to leaving. Nieuwendyk said he did not want to reveal the teams, but Modano said one was Washington.

"We talked about this a couple of months ago and we agreed at the time that if there were teams interested, I would bring the information to Mike," Nieuwendyk said. "I did that and he decided he wanted to stay."

Modano said it would have felt strange to leave.

I'm glad to see he stuck with the Stars. I just hate seeing players leave after years and years of loyalty. It would have been like watching Yzerman wear anything but a Red Wings uniform.
